Transportation Reform on Land, Sea and Air for America

The Hart Cunningham administration looks to a bright future in public transportation, for a better America, for a better earth, advancing life for all humankind. In 2020, Hart will initiate a task force rapidly with a focus on modern and efficient public transportation that is beyond improvement of roads but encompassment an integration of urban to the rural transport network. Bridging the gap between communities with low emission transportation solutions will improve life in America, and the world. As our cities continue to increase in population, work and dwelling lifestyle built within easy reach of public transportation, with new code transportation options. Commuters will enjoy a better quality of life, in both timesaving and costs, plus, the environmental benefits of cleaner air for all. Urban planning with transportation measures will receive workable loans and grant packages to transform our cities and grids as they also connect to rural areas.

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.”

Jason Cao.

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.

Quality Life for All with Clean, Efficient, Safe Public Transportation

Renewed effort on vehicle emissions

“Greenhouse gases trap heat and make the planet warmer. Human activities are responsible for almost all of the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere over the last 150 years. The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in the United States is from burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation.” EPA

27 percent of 2015 greenhouse gas emissions came from transportation; we can reduce this and create substantial growth through new jobs in those alternative energy sectors. At the core of Presidential Candidate Hart’s policy is a reduced U.S. carbon footprint while America leads the world in fuel and energy alternatives. As the U.S. conserves natural resources and builds a better public transportation grid of low emission, citizens will begin to move towards a brighter future, unthreatened by the effects of climate change.

Electric Vehicles-Yes as a renewable

Most of U.S. electricity is fossil fuel generated; the approach of electric vehicles will be renewable sources of energy to power. In 2016, the most significant energy source for the 4 trillion kilowatt-hours used in the United States was natural gas. Hart Cunningham’s leadership will steer America towards renewable energy sources to provide 100% of U.S. electricity, enabling electric cars to play a minor role in carbon footprinting. Hart Cunningham’s desire to realize effective policy for DOT reform is to harness the advances in alternatives fuels, technology, and air and land transportation that will result in significant job growth. The U.S. total energy-related carbon dioxide emissions between 1975 and 201 6 leave no room for doubt. In 2016, around 5.17 billion metric tons of CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere from energy consumption in the United States. In 2015, approximately 34.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emitted globally by humankind, according to The Statistics Portal.

The main benefits from a renewed national transportation infrastructure that stretces from local communities to inter-state would transform this nation and substantially reduce our carbon release footprint; it would also garner renewed community spirit, increasing the well-being of millions. Hart Cunningham as President is committed to social and environment that we face and plans to turn the harmful effects of obsolete transportation into future of positive mobility, enriching the lives of all Americans.

Modernized improve sidewalks and urban rental bikes

The benefits of modernized walking paths and urban rental bikes are twofold; Benefits include communities’ beautification and increased well-being for citizens. The Cunningham administration will grant fund in cities committed to investing in public accessibility, utilizing the latest in safety technology for renewed parks and community sites. Citizens of every fitness level will have better options to freely and safely walk or and enjoy the pathways. Federal funding recipients receive grants based on city’s ability to:

  • Improve sidewalks, crosswalks, and bikeways
  • Increase connectivity of pedestrian paths and availability of public bicycle infrastructure
  • Reduce dangers of walking and cycling with increased security
  • Increase grid network of public transport between pathways

Turning Climate Change Around for America and the World with Modernized Transportation

Ride-sharing transportation tax credits and increased carpool lanes

Ride sharing is a vital link in the strategy Hart has to reduce our carbon footprint and reduce the heating of the planet. Having adequate carpool lanes on freeways will allow all to share rides and reduce the number of fossil fuel vehicles on the roads. Giving incentives to those who carpool to would enhance the motivations to ride share to work. Self-driving cars could also become a significant part of ridesharing in the future opening up new avenues of mobility to millions of Americans. Various companies are already offering paid ride services, Lyft, Uber and now Google moving into the ride-share service business. The Cunningham administration will introduce a new tax credit supporting ride-Share increased investment, and designate funding to improve carpool lanes in congested areas of travel.

Old School and city buses replaced with updated renewable energy systems

Removing or retrofitting fossil-fueled school and city buses replacing them with environmentally, clean, renewable energy vehicles improving emissions, and providing cost-efficient means of transport of schoolchildren and citizens.

“California Gov. Jerry Brown signed an executive order to get 5 million zero-emission Vehicles (ZEVs) on the road in California by 2030 – a significant jump from the 350,000 ZEVs currently on the state’s roads.”

It is not just the old school bus stock that needs replacing, but a total revamping of the public transportation system, switching renewables completely. As part of that strategy, the Cunningham administration is committed to the bold plan for the whole nation. Harnessing established methods in renewables and investing in new ideas for transportation will realize Hart’s vision for a clean energy future.

Creating Jobs that Fuel the New Economy through Green Technologies for Air, Land and Sea Mobility

Renewables have taken to the skies

The promise of renewables to fuel the aviation industry is here, with promising results. Virgin Atlantic, KLM, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, FedEx, JetBlue and the U.S. Navy are some organizations investing in R&D boldly spearheading the efforts to a cleaner future.

” It’s an estimated 65% cleaner than conventional jet fuel. “

Renewable Energy World

United Airlines has partnered with AltAir based at LAX to purchase 15 million gallons of biofuel over a three-year period. These commitments pave the airways to a cleaner future and a more sustainable infrastructure. The Cunningham administration will foster this great endeavor and provide an additional grant to expand the research for renewable aviation fuels.

” Clean energy innovation is the solution to climate change. …We don’t have the luxury of waiting for new technologies to emerge. We need to rapidly accelerate the pace of innovation to meet the climate challenge. “

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz

The urgency to find a safe, viable alternative for fuel to the aviation sector must happen to make a significant dent in the U.S. carbon emissions footprint.

Investing in transportation renewables, infrastructure, and modernization

The Hart Cunningham administration will achieve our renewable energy goals and improve the quality of life for all Americans while protecting the environment from further damage. The flexibility with renewable energy research means if a technology works in one sector it is possible to modify it to work in other areas, reducing significant costs of redesign, time and implementation. The positive benefits from adopting an inspired and forward-thinking renewable energy policy will bring forth a regeneration of the planet, and the new economy in the renewable sector field, benefiting all including future generations.
