Commuter RAIL Campaign

GOAL: To reform state and local transportation programs to reduce sprawl, provide travel choices and restore the environment. For fifty years we have tried to build our way out of congestion with ever more highways. Now we have a system which pollutes our air, promotes obesity and disrupts communities with continual demands to widen roads. We are using a combination of public education, litigation and lobbying to implement a new vision for transportation, one that is safe, healthy, convenient and sustainable.

  OVERVIEW: Public transit can serve as an environmentally-friendly alternative to sprawl-inducing highways, traffic jams, and air pollution, but too often our elected officials favor building more roads over supporting buses, subways, and light rail systems.
