Description:

In the past few years, there has been a renewed interest in looking at any number of viable transportation options ranging from enhanced carpooling systems to building pedestrian-friendly communities. One coalition that has spent a considerable time examining these matters is the Surface Transportation Policy Partnership (STPP). The homepage provides quick access to a number of helpful publications, including “A Guide to Transportation Opportunities in Your Community”, which reviews “how federal surface transportation law can be used to support local and statewide efforts to build more livable communities and expand travel options.” Visitors may also enjoy the “Key Reports” area, which includes such titles as “Aging Americans: Stranded Without Options”. The site is rounded out by the “Stats for Your State” section, which includes an interactive map of the 50 states. Here, visitors can click on each state to view statistics that indicate the level of federal funding for transportation there and regional congestion data.
