Our increasing frustration with growing traffic congestion is matched by our inability to doing something about it. We need to do more with less as our problems become more complex and solutions more expensive. Creative and innovative solutions are needed to address today's transportation challenges, but they need to be cost-effective, tied to our goals, and supported by technical analyses rooted in common sense. We can meet the challenge because we must.
