We are encouraged that President Donald Trump and Congress have spoken about prioritizing transportation infrastructure, but we want to see promises become action.
Funding and improving America’s transportation network must be among the most important issues our elected leaders tackle.
Businesses need our transportation network to be the best it can be to ensure the timely movement of goods and keep our economy strong. Additionally, we know that members of the public are affected by issues – such as failing bridges, lack of public transit and road problems – that plague our transportation network.
Despite surface-transportation legislation passed in 2015, it is imperative that our leaders know there is still a need for sustainable funding and smart solutions, as experts anticipate a looming $2 trillion infrastructure shortfall, which includes investments for surface transportation.
Send this letter to Congress to help the ATM Coalition communicate that America needs robust funding and policies, along with involvement from all levels of government (local, state and federal) and the private sector, to ensure that our transportation network is faster, better and safer.
