Transportation

We believe that transportation systems that are efficient, flexible and visionary are key to a healthy economy and environment.

We support:

  • effective and efficient security of ports, freight, and passenger travel
  • investments in public infrastructure that reduce dependence on the automobile
  • improved facilities and sidewalks for wheelchair, pedestrian and non-motorized movement
  • public involvement in developing transportation plans and systems
  • use of alternative fuel, electric and hybrid vehicles
  • public input, review and voting as a part of major airport expansion and major highway construction
  • enhancement of arterials that discourages inappropriate land use and development
  • enhanced support and development of our heavy rail and navigable water infrastructure
  • development of light rail and high speed rail
  • managing our rails to prevent coal and oil domination of shipping, at the expense of our passenger service, and shipping for local agriculture and manufacturing
