Political and Financial Barriers and Transportation Solutions

Political and Financial Barriers and Transportation Solutions

Like last week, your readings identify several transportation solutions and identify political and financial barriers. Which solutions do you find the most promising (and politically and financially viable)? Based on the reading and our class discussion last week, how do you think the Covid pandemic will shape transportation in the future?

The response should: 1) critically discuss or reflect on specific themes, concepts, data or proposals presented in the readings; 2) include some comparative assessment or identify connections among different readings; and 3) include at least one thoughtful discussion question. Your original post should be at least 300 words (about a page and a half double spaced). Thoughtful and analytical responses typically take up to 500 words. Don’t respond with generalities (e.g. “This was an interesting article).
