Prioritize investments in infrastructure to make travel more sustainable, efficient, and connected.

Quick Facts

By prioritizing infrastructure investments now, the U.S. can emerge from the pandemic and rebuild the travel industry with more sustainable, efficient, and modern systems than ever before. Even before the public health crisis, cities and towns were growing further apart due to aging, insufficient infrastructure and congested roadways. There is an opportunity to modernize these systems, invest in new modes of transportation and facilitate recovery efforts by reconnecting Americans to each other and the world.

Recommendations

Prioritize investments to improve travel mobility; including, the expansion of rail service, electric vehicle and airport infrastructure, and modernizing national parks

Provide tax incentives and grants for electric vehicle charging stations and energy-efficient commercial buildings

The U.S. Department of the Interior should modernize existing systems to ensure stability in maintenance and infrastructure that protect the visitor experience
