I said, 'I want to do community work', I want to work where I can make a difference in the community... Dr. Irene Porcarello, native East Ender, President, HCC Southeast College
The East End is multi-modal
If you’re a resident of the East End, you know that the options for getting around are better than most of the rest of the city. We’ve got a new set of bus routes, we have the Columbia Tap and Harrisburg trails, and the METROrail. And that’s exactly what “multi-modal” means. Ride your bike to a train stop, head the short distance to downtown and reach practically any end of the city–all without a car. Few other parts of the city can say that.
