The Future of Federal Transportation Planning in America

In this podcast, Next American City talks with Robert Puentes of the Brookings Institution about the future of transportation in America.

They discuss new federal efforts aimed at transportation issues, and how the nation's investments in those projects will change.

"President Obama's recently announced plan to rebuild and modernize roads and railways, the potential to create new investment tools to facilitate national- and regional-level thinking in infrastructure investment, and the likelihood of a gas tax. Plus: promising transit investments in Denver and Salt Lake City; what the ordinary citizen can do to advocate for transit spending, and how the recession just may end up being the fuel for innovation."
