Moving people and commerce where they want and need to go.
People should have transportation options.
Minnesotans want a transportation system that gets them to their destinations quickly and at a reasonable cost. Nearly everyone relies on a car. We need to prioritize our transportation dollars to make sure people can use their cars and get where they want to go – their jobs, their games, and their recreation - as quickly and as safely as possible.
