Our Transportation Vision


1000 Friends’ transportation vision for Wisconsin is an affordable, reliable, and balanced transportation system that will benefit the economic health of communities, preserve and promote environmental quality and social equity, as well as meet the mobility of all Wisconsin’s residents. A balanced transportation system is one that does not require residents to depend on a single mode of transportation. Our goal is to move the state from the transportation system we have now towards this vision.
