21st Century Transportation for America

 
2 FUTURES FOR AMERICA TO CHOOSE FROM
 

"It depends on where you want to end up"

 
America stands right at the decision time for shaping our future. Right now, America's future can go in 2 radically different directions, all depending on exactly what our leaders invest in today that will shape our tomorrow. Every investment has a major role in shaping the future we all deal with every day.

Rather than leaving it to chance, and the possibility we'll get 50 more years of the same transportation mess we've had for the last 50 years, its important to decide first the kind of future we want, and then build that future step by step.
