Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

U.S. dithers on rail projects – Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

So does the United States have the will to do anything about its sclerotic transportation systems?

Unlike almost every other developed nation, the U.S. has no national transportation strategy. The nation fails to raise taxes that are supposed to pay for roads and rails. Gasoline taxes, for example, cover only about 50 percent of road projects, much lower than in the past, according to recent Federal Highway Administration figures.

America certainly isn’t developing the design, construction and management capacity to build on a large scale to global standards.
