Refocus. Reform. Renew. A New Transportation Approach for America

This plan offers a new approach to transportation that creates easier and more sustainable ways to pay for and build roads and transit systems. The plan lays out the Administration's framework for completely overhauling the way U.S. transportation decisions and investments are made. It is intended to spur local, State and Federal debate about how best to incorporate the new reforms into the highway legislation Congress will begin work on this fall. Briefly stated, the central themes in the reform proposal are as follows: (1) A clearer and more focused Federal role; (2) A data- and technology-driven approach to safety; (3) Increased State and municipal flexibility; (4) More rational (and accountable) investment decisions; (5) Encouragement of more efficient pricing and leveraging of Federal resources; and (6) More efficient and effective environmental stewardship.
