Beyond the Ballot Box – Sustainable Transportation Funding in a Time of Federal Retrenchment

by Mariia Zimmerman


In addition to my consulting work with MZ Strategies, LLC this year I am a Visiting Fellow with The Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech (Alexandria Campus). Please visit my post today on The Sustainability Planning Lab to read my thoughts on the implications of the rising tide of local transit ballot measures. Does this represent a paradigm shift in funding regional sustainable transportation projects with federal direct support yielding to loans and local funding strategies? If so, what are the implications for regional equity and transportation innovation?
