Support for Public Transportation Strong


Transportation for America conducted a Future of Transportation Poll, in which it gauged the public’s interest in investing fund in public transportation. The results of this poll were interesting.

Over 80% of all voters believe that the US “woould benefit from an expanded public transportation system.” And transit choice is an important reason cited for this. Often, those who live in the suburbs are left with no choice but to use a car. While it may be enjoyable for some to drive even short distances, many individuals would prefer some options in both commuting to work and recreation areas.

What do you think about these poll results?
