Poll Finds 74% Favor More Transit Aid

A large majority of Americans believe that Congress should increase public transit funding, the American Public Transportation Association said this week.

A poll conducted for APTA by the Mineta Transportation Institution found 74 percent of respondents favored increased federal transit funding and 80 percent support using tax dollars for creating, expanding and improving public transportation in their communities.

The poll also found 80 percent of respondents said public transit is important to communities because it “helps businesses flourish.”

The survey collected data from 1,201 interviews with individuals across the United States.
