Talking Points

The benefits of transportation options

Why would a community want more transportation options?

  • Boost the economy through increased sales and tourism
  • Increase property values, both commercial and residential
  • Attract younger workers to stay, work and play
  • Support healthy kids
  • Support health and dignity as we age
  • Provide access to community life for people of all ages and abilities
  • Protect the environment for generations to come

See our Transportation Options Resource Guide for more on why and how to create more options on your community, including possible sources of funding for projects.
