A handy multimedia map may give authorities a much-needed jolt into funding proposed transport systems.
Reconnecting America, which aims to increase public awareness of transportation projects across the country, has released an eye-catching map to demonstrate the importance of improved communications.
The Transit Space Map, released earlier this year, highlighted 721 planned projects, not including those between states, which require government financing to go ahead. Potential expenditure isn’t available for all, but the 497 for which the nonprofit could dig up information will cost approximately $250 to finish. The catch? If federal outlay stays at the same level, it would take 78 years!
