People support mass transit to fix problems

A new poll shows that more people support increasing transit options in order to fix our growing problems with congestion. Increasing transit by itself was more popular than increasing transit and building new roads, and it far outstripped building new roads only.

Hopefully, this support will signal the legislature that something needs to be done, and soon. In recent years, Republicans adhering to "no new taxes" pledges have prevented putting any new money into transportation, and as a result our infrastructure continues to fall apart. We need more money, period. Let's get this done.
