Americans See Value in Public Transportation
According to the 2007 Growth and Transportation Survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors, Americans are increasingly concerned with the relationship between development and climate change. A high percentage of the 1,000 Americans polled would rather see tax dollars spent on increasing public transportation and developing more walkable communities, over the construction of new roads. The survey also indicates that Americans are opposed to privatizing roads and highways. To read more survey results, visit Smart Growth America.
