This year on Election Day, voters across the country will have the opportunity to improve public transportation in their communities and help shape the future of transportation in the US. Forty-three (43) transportation-related measures will appear on ballots across the country on November 8th looking to capture some of the over $175 billion in funding available.
Some cities that will get the chance to weigh in on those 43 transit measures include Los Angeles, Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, and Indianapolis.
In 2016, 70 transportation-related ballot measures have gone before voters which is a record breaking number. Ballot measures include initiatives that would improve transit, walking, and biking infrastructure, giving voters a unique opportunity to influence the state of public transportation in their cities.
