8 Findings: Transportation Policy Priorities What are respondents transportation priorities for the government? 8

9 Maintenance is the clear priority Maintenance is the highest priority for all generations, though it is less so for millennials compared to the older generations Millennials generally place higher priority on transit, walking, and bicycling as government priorities compared to the other generations Q Now, I'm going to read you a list, and I'd like you to tell me whether each of the following should be an extremely high priority, a high priority, a middle priority, a low priority, or an extremely low priority for the government. % indicating this is a high or extremely high priority 74% Millennials 89% 84% 85% Gen X Baby Boomers Silent/Greatest Gen. Maintaining and repairing roads, highways, freeways and bridges 62% 62% 56% 56% 59% 56% 58% 55% 53% 51% 50% 49% 48% 48% 48% 42% 42% 38% Millennials Gen X Baby Boomers Silent/Greatest Gen.

10 Maintenance is the clear priority 83% indicated that maintaining and repairing roads and bridges is a high priority, with over half of those saying it is an extremely high priority Maintaining and repairing roads, highways, freeways and bridges Building more roads and expand existing roads to help reduce traffic congestion Expanding public transportation, including trains and buses 25% 25% 44% 35% 29% 38% 27% 26% 13% 4% 14% 20% This far exceeded the next priority: expanding roads to help reduce congestion (60% high or extremely high) Over half indicated that expanding public transit and providing convenient alternatives to driving, such as walking, biking and transit were high priorities. Providing convenient alternatives to driving such as walking, biking, and public transportation Developing communities where more people do not have to drive long distances to work or shop Building more sidewalks 23% 19% 16% 28% 29% 30% 30% 31% 28% 19% 23% 24% Q Now, I'm going to read you a list, and I'd like you to tell me whether each of the following should be an extremely high priority, a high priority, a middle priority, a low priority, or an extremely low priority for the government. Building more bike lanes and paths 11% 21% 31% 37% Extremely High High priority Middle priority Low priority Don t know responses not included (<5%). 10

11 Most don t know how to replace shrinking gas tax revenue or don t want to When asked how to replace shrinking gas tax revenues, 28% indicated that they preferred no replacement and 25% did not have an opinion. Equal shares (17%) opted for increasing the gas tax or replacing it with a tax based on miles driven. A similar question on the 2013 NAR Smart Growth Poll representing both urban and rural Americans had only 8% favoring increasing the gas tax, compared to 20% opting for the tax on miles driven. Equal shares (29%) chose no replacement or were undecided. Q26 As you may know, increased fuel efficiency in cars has resulted in less gas tax funding to support roads and transit. Thinking about this, which ONE of the following approaches would you take to replace that tax revenue? 11% Increase tolls or more toll roads 17% 17% Increase the gas tax Replace the gas tax with a tax based on the number of miles driven 28% Do not replace the tax revenue 25% (Don't know/refused) 11

31 Gas price increases won t motivate more transit use Respondents say that lower or free fares and better transit service would encourage them to ride more, but a $1 increase in gas prices likely would not. 62% 61% 61% 60% 59% 56% 57% 53% 54% 52% 51% 50% 54% 47% 27% 21% % saying yes Free transit service Service Faster service More reliable extended to service nearby communities / place I need to go More frequent service Safer service Cleaner service If the price of gas increased by $1 or more Q37 Please tell me, yes OR no, if any of the following would encourage you to make greater use of transit service.

35 Comfort level biking in different environments Most people feel very comfortable riding a bike on a separate path or trail. But only 13% feel very comfortable riding on a busy urban street with only a striped bike lane the most common type of bike infrastructure in most cities.
