Poll Shows New Jersey Residents Concerned About Transportation Funding

March 1, 2010

A new Monmouth University poll commissioned by New Jersey Future and the Tri-State Transportation Campaign  finds that 95 percent of New Jersey residents think it is important that we pay to maintain and improve our transportation system.

Yet almost half of the state’s residents don’t know that the Transportation Trust Fund is going broke. The Transportation Trust Fund is the primary source of money paying for road, bridge and transit repairs, as well as new transportation projects in the state. When informed about this impending financial situation, 72 percent of the respondents were somewhat or greatly concerned—though, not surprisingly, they are divided on whether to charge ourselves more to solve the problem.

The results of the poll were widely covered in NJ media:
