- "To grasp the enormity of London’s $1.4 billion bicycle investment, Janette Sadik-Khan, the sitting Commissioner of New York’s Department of Transportation (DOT) has a budget of roughly $2 billion at her disposal… that’s her entire transportation budget."
- Heritage Foundation hates diverting "highway" funding to other transportation: "The current surface transportation law, called Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), did eliminate some TAs, such as transportation museums and acquisition of scenic or historic sites and easements, from the list of previously eligible activities, but lawmakers should go further. They should eliminate the eligibility of these programs [including bike projects] for federal funding and turn them over to the states and localities." But they love the idea of diverting other tax money to highways. [ And while it's true that $27.3 billion is technically diverted to transit, TA, etc... $18.8 billion of the trust money came from general tax funds (and not user fees); so really only $8.5 billion is being diverted from users.]
