Infastructure Woes

Why is the U.S. unwilling to pay for good public transportation?
System Overload

The US has been failing to maintain its public transportation and overall public infrastructure. Lack of solid public infrastructure impacts all modes of transit. Articles from The Conversation and The New Yorker discuss the impacts and reasons.

Our competitors are out-investing us in the vital infrastructure necessary to make our economy efficient and internationally competitive. Even when our public infrastructure spending is higher than our competitors, it is less well-targeted because decisions are more politically motivated than based on economic rationality.
