Hi Everyone. Been reading for years. But first time posting.
Looks like the Pittsburgh region made it to the top 20 cities Amazon is considering.http://wtae.com/article/amazon-narrows- ... 23?src=app
While this is an Airlines Forum. It it makes me think that our city has a slim to none chance of landing the bid. My thoughts are simple. Our public transportation is atrocious. For the first time in many years I do believe that the air service in the city sufficient, but creating nearly 50,000 jobs as promised public transportation has to be in place.
I know the port authority hired a new CEO. Maybe she could work with the airport CEO and learn how to run the operation and possibly integrate the two better.

Interesting collection of cities in the Top 20. I believe the real contenders are in there but are far fewer than 20. Some of those places are puzzling given what Amazon says they are looking for. I believe some on the list are just decoys.
Decoys? Decoys for what? Who are they trying to fool? There are definitely frontrunners on that list, but every city is on there because Amazon is interested in what their proposal brought to the table.
