Reconnecting America has updated its "Transit Space Race" map, which shows 721 fixed-guideway transit projects in various stages of planning or construction in the U.S.
More than 50 are already under construction. The projects include commuter rail, subways, streetcars and bus lines. "Of the current projects, 497 have a cost estimate," Reconnecting America said. "The total required to build just those 497 projects would be $250 billion. At the current rate of federal transit investment, it would require more than 78 years to construct those projects."
