From technology to financing, we must use every tool at our disposal
When we talk about making transportation safer and stronger, and being more efficient as we improve the roads, rails, bridges, and buses we leave for the next generation of Americans, we're not talking about filling in potholes. We're talking about a transportation system that is stronger for the long-term. And to make that happen, we need every tool in the box...and a few we haven't even thought of yet.
Because just as the men and women of today need to be able to get to jobs or school without having to fight traffic or stand in the hot summer sun waiting for the bus, our kids and the kids of our neighbors and friends will need transportation that works tomorrow.
They are counting on us to give them an America that is stronger than the one we inherited--just as those who came before us left a rail network that stretched from coast to coast and then an interstate highway network that connected communities across the nation. From new technologies to public private partnerships, we must use every tool at our disposal to make our transportation system better.
