Public-Private Partnerships for Maximum Effectiveness
Lower Traffic Congestion and Higher Productivity
Washington’s economy wastes over $20 billion/year in energy and congestion — almost as much as we spend on operating the state government. We can strengthen our economic vitality while simultaneously slashing greenhouse gas emissions by using the methods of entrepreneurial businesses — pursue aggressive but achievable goals, leverage enabling technologies, and tune based on actual results.
