Transportation - Goal 3


State and federal funding priorities are directed to support reliable transit, passenger rail, and active transportation projects and operations.

IN 20 YEARS - State constitutional transportation funding formulas are removed or altered to balance roads, public transit, passenger rail, and active transportation funding. Federal and state transportation funding is well balanced between roads, public transit, passenger rail, and active transportation projects.

IN 10 YEARS - State constitutional transportation funding formulas are removed or altered to balance roads, public transit, passenger rail, and active transportation funding. Federal and state transportation funding is well balanced between roads, public transit, passenger rail, and active transportation projects. Economic development incentives are directly tied to location efficiency (how close a proposed development is to a public transportation service and other existing infrastructure). A transit capital fund has been established and capitalized from a dedicated revenue stream that finances new transit projects.

IN 2 YEARS - Michigan funds public transportation capital and operating expenses at sustainable levels. The state has increased funding for public transportation capital projects and operations to a level which will support our existing systems.
