21st Century Transportation

Indiana was once a leader in public transportation.  But since the abandonment of the Interurban system, Hoosiers have relied heavily on automobiles for personal travel.

It hasn’t come without a price. Indiana has the sixth highest road density in the United States.  Despite this, our state government continues its habit of solving all transportation problems with more and bigger roads.

The 10 year Major Moves program devoted 55% of its road spending—nearly $6 billion –to new roads vs. 45% for repairs and maintenance on existing roads and bridges.   A mere three percent of Indiana’s transportation spending goes to public transportation and non-highway projects.
