Lydia DePillis lists just some of Alpert's successes:
"In December 2008, Greater Greater Washington-and the gang of policy nerds Alpert has enlisted to help him run it-demanded that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority partner with Google to create a better mapping application for Metrobus and Metrorail riders. The agency is finally doing just that. In early 2009, Alpert championed efforts to tax plastic bags in order to clean up the Anacostia River. The measure is now law."
