Why is Transportation so Important?
It’s the integral tie between where we live, work, play, and how we get around.
It’s also central to the overall quality of life. Decisions about where we live, work, and shop revolve around the availability and number of transportation choices.
The availability and number of transportation choices impacts local communities in several ways:
-Diversity of tax revenues
-Image and public perception of accessibility or isolation
-Congestion within the community
-Congestion to and from the community
-The cost of building and maintenance of roadways and parking facilities
-Use of public services
