Transportation of America states:
America's transportation system is half a century behind—causing unnecessary pollution, expense, and congestion.
We need our next president to lead an initiative to invest in public transit, high-speed trains, places to bike and walk, and green innovation. We need a president with a plan to strengthen our economy, create jobs, reduce our dependence on oil, and make it easier for Americans to find the money to meet their growing transportation needs.
Fill out the fields below to urge John McCain and Barack Obama to discuss their plans to build a 21st Century transportation system in their remarks at the final presidential debate.
Text of the petition, from the Transportation for America website:
America’s transportation system is half a century behind and the increasing costs of moving around – paid for in dollars at the pump and hours lost sitting on congested, crumbling roads – are taking a real toll on American families.
We need our next president to lead an initiative to invest in public transit, high-speed trains, places to bike and walk, and green innovation. We need a president with a plan that can put millions to work in jobs that can’t be outsourced, bring down the costs of travel, and create a sustainable infrastructure that will keep America on the cutting edge.
I hope you will take the opportunity presented by your final debate to discuss your plans to build a 21st Century transportation system.
