Public transit is at an important crossroads. With the folks on Capitol Hill focusing on health care and climate change legislation, the authorization of a new transportation bill has been put on the backburner. Not too promising a signal, especially with so much importance being put on this reauthorization by many transportation providers who are being financially pushed to the limit.
There appear to be signals that this authorization bill will not prove to be the magic bullet that so many hoped it would be. Putting it off for three more months could definitely be one of those disturbing signs. What are your opinions on how this transportation bill will eventually shape up?
