Progressive Local Government for the 21st Century

Transportation & Mobility

Long commutes, traffic jams, air and noise pollution, and an aging infrastructure – America’s struggle with automobile dependency is increasingly important to address.

ProGov21’s transportation & mobility policy roadmap provides an introduction to local progressive policies to address these and other issues.
