However, there’s still work to be done in the Senate, so I created a new map that shows us a more complete picture of where, why, and how America is going to begin the process of increasing its transit infrastructure.
I created a mashup of four transit related databases integrated onto this one map:
- Cities showing increased demand for public transit between 2007 and 2008, from the National Transit Database
- Where transit cuts are proposed, a map created by Tranportation for America.
- What projects could start right away? Another map from Transportation for America showing the proverbial low-hanging fruit.
- And examples of transit innovations from across the country, an EDF original map of programs from Bikeshare to Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), and everything in between.
While I had already created a map depicting transit growth, this new integrated map also sports more recent data.
Do you rely upon public transportation? Would you like to see it expanded along with innovative new programs to help you get from point A to point B? Tell us at EDF how you think this might help you or the folks in your area…write a comment!
