Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has made significant strides in his role as Secretary of Transportation in the Biden administration. With an aim to improve the nation's transportation infrastructure, Buttigieg has been actively involved in various initiatives and has faced both praise and criticism for his efforts.
One of the key issues Buttigieg has addressed is the cost of air travel for families. Ensuring you sit with your child on a plane can cost up to $50, which has sparked a debate on the affordability of air travel for families. Buttigieg has been working towards finding solutions to make air travel more accessible and affordable for all Americans.
In addition to air travel, Buttigieg has also been involved in discussions related to surprise resort fees that can drive up lodging costs significantly. These fees have become a concern for travelers, and Buttigieg has been exploring ways to regulate and make these fees transparent to consumers.
