ULX: Beyond Car-Dependent Buildings - Urban Land Magazine
The siting, design, and programming of buildings can encourage or discourage people from using public transit and other alternatives to the automobile. For example, placing housing near grocery stores and other neighborhood-serving retail outlets reduces the need for trips made by car. Giving apartment dwellers handy, secure bike storage makes owning a bike much simpler, and providing affordable housing in prime spots close to multiple transit lines grants access to those who need affordable means of travel the most.

No Easy Solutions Funding Transformational U.S. Transit - Urban Land Magazine
Transit officials can find innovative ways to bring private capital and more efficiency to their transit projects—but partnerships with private developers are often not enough. Disasters like Hurricane Sandy, which struck New York City in late October 2012, created a huge need for repairs to and expansion of the region’s transit network. Unpredictable public funding makes it difficult to capture private investment while deferred maintenance can increase costs later.

The State of U.S. Transportation Infrastructure and Its Impact on Manufacturing - Gray Construction
It is no secret that America's aging infrastructure is in dire need of attention—it’s one issue our nation’s business, economic and elected leaders find consensus on across the board. It’s obvious why a poorly maintained infrastructure is bad for manufacturing—if interstate lanes are blocked by construction for long periods of time, or the speed limit is reduced on a bridge due to structural deficiencies, it creates bottlenecks, congestion and puts a kink in delivery schedules.
