INCENTIVES FOR MOBILITY: USING MARKET MECHANISMS TO REBUILD AMERICA'S TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE. WORKING PAPER

This policy study proposes that the solution to America's inadequate transportation infrastructure should be a market-oriented approach rather than simply spending more public money. This approach stresses user funding, dedicated revenues, market pricing, and the use of private capital, principles which can be applied to airports, highways and freeways, mass transit, ports and waterways. It is concluded that Federal and state policies toward transportation infrastructure, when revised in accordance with these principles, will make more efficient use of existing capacity and will target new resources to the highest-priority infrastructure needs.
