The kind of transportation we invest in determines the shape of our communities, our access to jobs and services, and how much of our time and money we spend on getting around.
In the United States, there isn’t enough attention focused on getting a return on our transportation investments or even maintaining the infrastructure we already have – both of which provide people with the options that connect them to jobs and opportunity. We believe that coordinated intervention is needed to ensure that transportation planning and infrastructure policy serves the needs of 21st century America.
