$77 Billion Needed to Fix U.S. Transit
Melanie Turner writes that "While most of the $77.7 billion backlog can be attributed to rail, more than 40 percent of the nation's buses also are in poor to marginal condition. In addition, an annual average of $14.4 billion would be required to maintain the systems, according to the study."
The report says that 41% of buses in the U.S. are in poor or marginal condition, and 26% of rail assets.
