      Traffic
    • 3. Several Myths
      Underfunded
      More people would ride if they could
      GM conspired to rid the nation of streetcars
      Building new highways adds to the number of cars on the roadway
      Urban transit redistributes growth, not stimulate it
      Driver’s slow reaction time is to blame for traffic
      Opponents
    • 4. Texas Transportation Institute survey of 100,000+ cities
      62 hours per year in traffic
      Congestion 7 hours a day
      60% roadways get congested
      2/3 of congestion in cities with less than 500,000
      The Problem
    • 5. Too many vehicles
      Between 1980-2000, 24% population growth and 46% car registration growth
      60% live in areas of 1 million and 8.3% have subway access
      5.7 billion gallons of gasoline wasted per year
      The Problem
    • 6. In 1998 Economist magazine predicted oil prices to drop from $10 a barrel to $2 a barrel
      In the next 9 years oil prices rose to $60 a barrel
      Americans waste $78 billion annually on fuel in traffic
      In 2007, 10.3 billion rides, the highest in the last 50 years since the development of the Interstate Highway
      Public Transportation is More Efficient

      Adults tend to live past a safe driving age
      They still need to go to
      Doctors
      Grocery store
      Exercise
      Lower cost per trip for consumers
      Public Transportation Will Reduce Urban Congestion
    • 9. Urban rail systems
