Nearly a third support expansion and improvement of bus, rail, and other public transportation options as a top national priority, while 16 percent said the same for expanding highways.

I just don't get this, all across this country transit systems are cutting services yet not a peep out of the OBAMA administration.
Yea there's been a few news stories but they have not drawn much attention.
This is so bizarre I can't even believe my eyes!
They roll out fancy new rail cars and people go "ooo" and "ahhh" at the same time they are intending to strand riders?
What's wrong with this picture?
Has the world gone completely nuts?
