Transportation infrastructure in the United States needs a $926 billion upgrade, the U.S. Department of Transportation says in a new report.
The report noted that transit route miles grew by more than 30 percent between 2002 and 2012
Light rail transit systems grew faster than any other mode of public transportation.
The report was given to Congress as part of DOT’s 2015 Conditions and Performance report, which is submitted on a biennial basis.
The last report, dated 2012, said that rail transit and bus systems needed a $17 billion per year upgrade.
