Earlier this summer, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) used a bi-partisan polling team to pose questions about transportation to 800 Americans.
Those polled seemed to agree that our current transportation system needs change. According to NRDC, of those 800 polled:
-59 percent feel the transportation system is “outdated, unreliable and inefficient”
-55 percent prefer to drive less, but 74 percent say they have no choice
-58 percent would like to use public transportation more often, but it is not convenient or available from their home or work
-68 percent support more local investment in improvements to public transportation (including 63 percent of those who do not use transit), with 39 percent supporting it “strongly”
