ABOUT OUR TRANSPORTATION FUTURE
Our Transportation Future (OTF) is a coalition of 55 local, regional and national organizations committed to modernizing transportation across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. OTF is working together with business and governmental leaders to develop a 21st-Century regional transportation system that is cleaner; offers more varied, accessible, and affordable transportation options; and serves the needs of everyone. We believe the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) will be an important component of this vision, and we advocate for the states participating in TCI to develop a policy that is robust and equitable.
