The western United States and local transportation issues

A diagram of a grade separation of two streets.The Transit Coalition went on a field study, traveled in and out of the Colorado Plateau region and surrounding states and gathered useful information of how these western states are addressing present-day transportation, economic and environmental issues.

The Coalition saw in action how a rapid transit shuttle system was established in Zion National Park to eliminate--that's right--eliminate traffic and parking problems within the park. How about express bypass lanes along the major throughfares near Salt Lake City and near the Las Vegas Strip? How is the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System near the California-Nevada state border faring? Would any of these solutions work in Southern California?

Stay tuned for more information as The Transit Coalition places the information gathered into perspective.
