Money Matters When It Comes to Support for Mass Transit

A majority of Americans thinks the federal government should support more mass transit projects - unless the projects lose money.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of American Adults think the federal government should do more to encourage use of mass transit services in this country, including funding more public transportation projects. Thirty-four percent (34%) are opposed to more government promotion of mass transit, while 14% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
