Fixing Transit Is More Than Just Infrastructure

  • Date: 05/17/2021

If we want to make real progress in creating a new vision for American mobility, the Biden Administration and Congress will need to stop funding transportation like it’s the 1980s. It is time to move past our excessive focus on large highway capital projects and remove limitations that constrain how cities and rural communities deploy public transportation.

The good news is that the technology needed to drive this change is already up and running in hundreds of communities across the country: big and small, urban and rural, red and blue. Today we can plan smarter transit networks, build safer streets, and launch more nimble services designed to immediately enhance transportation for those who need it most. But without changes to the way we approach transportation funding, cities will be unable to leverage these innovations.
