America has several opportunities to move our transportation systems into the 21st century. The legislative and executive branches are working now on a number of initiatives, such as the transportation reauthorization bill, vehicle fuel efficiency standards, and a host of rail, freight, port and sustainable community endeavors to modernize American transportation. We need networks that have the capacity to meet the demands of an economy that is increasingly dependent upon “just in time” delivery and moves people and goods more efficiently, while at the same time increasing our energy independence, protecting our environment, and creating good, green jobs.
