"Our public transportation is strikingly underdeveloped in the United States relative to the rest of the world, leading to environmental issues, congestion, and societal inequity. The Second District is a microcosm for these inequities, making it difficult for families and students with limited resources. At the same time, local entrepreneurs and small businesses benefit from a quality transportation system."
What Needs To Be Done?
1. Improve Existing Transportation Infrastructure Across the United States
As Congresswoman, I will create legislation to support the maintenance and expansion of multi-modal transportation. We need to rebuild core infrastructure across America using innovative and sustainable technologies.
2. Reduce Congestion in Overcrowded Cities
As Congresswoman, I will advocate for the use of smart city technology, adaptive traffic signals, as well as car sharing programs.
3. Vastly Improve Omaha’s Public Transit System
As Congresswoman, I will work to close opportunity gaps by investing in new public transportation infrastructure in mid-sized cities like Omaha.
