  • Abstract:
    Though transportation is obviously only one of many daunting challenges that America faces today, it remains an exceptionally important one. Without investing adequately in transportation to refresh our models for funding and managing our system, America is in danger of losing its competitive edge. The ability to move people and goods flexibly, efficiently, and cost-effectively is as critical as ever. It is essential not only to maintaining U.S. global competitiveness, but to nurturing a dynamic and adaptable workforce, growing local and regional economies, supporting livable communities, and reducing the environmental and national security liabilities of our continued dependence on petroleum fuels for nearly all our transportation needs. The task is two-fold: to maintain and improve existing infrastructure and systems, which are increasingly overloaded and inadequately maintained, while also investing in the new systems and technologies that will be needed to meet the mobility needs of the future. America requires a new vision for transportation. While our needs have changed in the last 50 years, our national models for selecting, prioritizing, coordinating, and funding transportation investments have not. This report takes a fresh look at current challenges and constraints and outlines several specific recommendations for a new approach to U.S. transportation policy. Throughout, it builds on insights and proposals developed in other recent efforts to grapple with the issue of transportation reform.
