Rex Brooks, Russell Ruggiero and Matthew Harang present this extensive report on the state of transportation in California. The study examines problems and issues faced at the metropolitan and regional levels, and provides possible solutions to some of these complex issues. The report examines issues from traffic and gas prices to public transit systems and budget issues. This study does not pretend to solve a defined problem, but it may be of value in exploring ideas or concepts that may ultimately help to solve the problem. (Photo credit: Matt Harang)
