Abstract: Robust public transportation options can yield significant savings for households, local governments, and the environment. However, the lack of stable funding for public transit threatens the long-term viability of transportation systems that offer alternatives to dependence on automobiles. This article looks at some possibilities for policy reform that can re-balance transportation priorities and spending to better support the development of walkable neighborhoods near high quality transit.
