America THINKS surveys

Several times a year, HNTB asks Americans, “What do you think?” about transportation infrastructure issues, ranging from public transit and tolling to aviation and AV/CV technology.

HNTB then packages the publicity poll’s findings to share with the industry, elected and appointed officials, and the public. The results of each America THINKS survey help pinpoint concerns, encourage discussion and shape solutions.

And, what do Americans think? They understand that emerging demands on an already over-burdened transportation network affect us all, and they express a desire for improvements that will contribute to increased safety and convenience.

In 2018, HNTB conducted four national surveys that studied issues associated with airport terminals, autonomous vehicles, public transportation, and congestion and tolling to help fund infrastructure costs. Here is the 2018 survey compilation, which encompasses data from these survey results, along with sample media coverage:
