Wednesday's Words

"We're changing how we move in this country," said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx to an audience at Google's main campus in Mountain View on Monday.

"As populations starts to concentrate around metropolitan areas around the country, and you start to see more congestion—increasing travel times—it has implications on how much money we need to invest but also what it is we're paying for with that money. Multimodal systems are going to be needed in the future."

"Multimodal meaning bus, car, train?" clarified Google's Eric Schmidt, who led the discussion.

"Choices," said Foxx. "Giving people choices."
