Convenient and efficient transportation infrastructure enhances the quality of communities, supports property values, and mitigates traffic congestion effects that accompany growth. REALTORS® support improving mobility in communities so that all citizens have access to transportation means best suited to their needs. NAR believes in leveling the playing field with respect to funding highways versus transit and other modes. NAR supports a broad community vision that considers the needs of all transportation users and emphasizes repair and maintenance over development of new capacity. In addition, NAR supports a modest increase in the federal motor fuel tax and annual adjustments for inflation.
