Managed lanes: promoting some uses while funding infrastructure
The spatial, financial and environmental pressures cities face limit municipalities’ ability to build new lanes in built-up areas or extend existing road networks. Future public transportation requirements can no longer be met by building new road or rail infrastructure.
