Jason Cao, a transport policy scholar at the University of Minnesota, conducted a fascinating comparative study demonstrating the effects of quality public transport on people’s lives. The essence of what he found was a deep satisfaction with life among those living near good public transportation.
“… The Hiawatha corridor impacts travel satisfaction through its influences on residents’ perceptions of transit access and service and their perceived easy access to activity destinations. Further, perceived accessibility to destinations has a direct effect on satisfaction with life.”
The positive effects of efficient, public transportation are central to Hart Cunningham’s administration, achieving these key agendas:
• Quality Life for All with Clean, Efficient, Safe Public Transportation
• Turning Climate Change Around for America and the World with Modernized Transportation
• Creating Jobs that Fuel the New Economy through Green Technologies for Air, Land and Sea Mobility The current administration has requested 75,536.1 in millions and employees 55,500 for the Department of Transportation (DOT) in 2018.* Also, there is a request for infrastructure funding of a total of 200 billion dollars for walls and other programs, but not for advanced technology transportation systems, or for cleantech. The Cunningham administration will use the same DOT budget and allocate to create unprecedented positive changes in the environment that will improve lives and create jobs.
