United Spinal salutes DOT's acknowledgment of what needs improved in public transit access in the above three major aspects of this goal, facilities, service and vehicles. Few can argue, these are the fundamentals of public transit. Yet, they are not static institutions. For mobility to grow, each of these must grow in step with advances in research, design and technology. In United Spinal's continual engagement with both the public and private sectors, we urge the development of model solutions than can then be applied broadly to the nation's needs. DOT is at the epicenter of commanding grants to enable this tested and successful approach to public policy and infrastructure.
