10,000 Friends advocates that the transportation reform agenda for Pennsylvania be guided by three overarching principles:
- Fix it first, by investing in maintenance and reconstruction before building new;
- Adequately and sustainably fund our public transportation systems; and
- Strongly link land use and transportation funding.
