More Transit = More Jobs

Transportation For America � TEN’s “More Transit = More Jobs” report reveals transit’s job-creation potential: "TEN outlined how a significant shift in federal transportation funds from highways to public transit — without spending more money overall — would impact 20 metropolitan areas in the United States. Each city surveyed would gain thousands of jobs from such a shift, an important indicator when nearly 1 out of every ten Americans is out of work. TEN’s proposal would not add a penny to deficit because it simply shifts existing revenues into broader transportation options."
