'Parade’ Poll Considers Transit Authorization Bill

The question of whether to shift some federal highway and bridge funding to public transit is stirring up enough interest that it is the topic of an opt-in poll conducted by Parade magazine.

The link to the yes-or-no question—“Should America divert some funding from highways and bridges to invest in public transit?”—appeared in the June 14 issue of the publication.

As Passenger Transport went to press on June 30, support for and opposition to the measure were tied at 50 percent on each side of the question. Parade reported that that the poll has received approximately 4,600 votes.

The survey accompanied a news story in the magazine discussing the upcoming federal transportation authorization bill, which Parade said “could be the biggest overhaul of America’s transportation priorities since the Eisenhower Administration paved the way for the nation’s interstate highway system in the 1950s.”
