Market based transportation reform

Ben Goldman covers the recent MC Roundtable in Streetsblog:  "In this camp, America’s transportation choices are seen as a market where providers compete across the various modes for the privilege of meeting each individual’s transportation needs. A good transportation policy, in this view, is one that makes such a market function as efficiently as possible, keeping costs low for travelers and profits high enough for providers to ensure continued service without excessive government subsidy or regulation. Here, the user-pays-user-benefits principle is sacrosanct, and fiscal self-sufficiency is paramount."
