Unit 6: Transportation in Municipalities
After completing this unit, you should be able to
One of the biggest concerns for citizens is the ability to travel quickly and easily through a municipality. The travelling public demands a well-constructed road network that enables them to travel by vehicle. Nothing causes citizens to write letters-to-the-editor of their local newspaper as quickly as spring potholes! Municipalities may also provide public transportation systems for their citizens. Municipalities spend time planning the transportation networks by which their citizens can travel through the municipalities. They build roads, or have them built on their behalf. They maintain them in furtherance of their statutory duties.
This unit explores transportation in municipalities, including roads and streets, public transportation, and the role municipalities have in the provision and regulation of rail and air transport.
