PennDOT gets a YouTube channel
HARRISBURG – PennDOT will now be directing traffic into cyberspace. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Monday announced its new YouTube channel.
Secretary Barry Schoch said, “Our YouTube channel is the next step in communicating with our customers in more personal, interactive ways… I encourage people to share these resources with their family and friends, or anyone who can benefit from the information.”
The channel currently includes time lapsed video from the May 9 tanker fire at the Interstate 81 and U.S. 22/322 interchange, as well as educational and safety videos. PennDOT plans to add videos featuring department maintenance operations as well as highway safety efforts in the future.
To view the PennDOT YouTube channel, go to www.youtube.com/PennsylvaniaDOT. The YouTube initiative complements PennDOT’s existing social media outreach on Facebook and Twitter. You can follow those pages as well, on Facebook at PennsylvaniaDepartmentOfTransportation, and Twitter at PennDOTNews.
