Increasing Mobility through Sustainable Transport in the United States

In the past twenty years, United States federal transportation policy and funding initiatives from the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), to the Partnership for Sustainable Communities have opened doors to establishing more sustainable transportation policies in the United States. However, the potential of these legislative reforms for transformation has not always resulted in change on the ground. A clear path to actionable, sustainable transportation policy requires a change within the local and regional agencies tasked with establishing and implementing the policy.
