Welcome to the transport politic.
This is a blog devoted to the politics of transit policy, with a focus on major investments in infrastructure improvements, notably in the construction of metro, light rail, commuter rail, and bus rapid transit lines.
Leading up to the election (in just two weeks!), we’ll be discussing how the future candidates are likely to influence transportation spending, what the Bush administration transit legacy will be, and how a number of initiatives being proposed directly to voters this year will affect future planning.
Stay connected for daily updates, covering news, political infighting, and the latest in the space wars.
We hope you enjoy this site and that it provides the relevant, up-to-date information you’re looking for.
Note: this blog’s emphasis is staying current on transit projects occuring all over the nation. As a result, we have included above a list (with helpful links) of all major voter initiatives in this fall’s election related to transportation, a list of major projects currently in construction or soon to be built, and a list of investments so far lacking in monetary support. This information will be updated regularly and eventually include links to blog posts related to each project.
