As Congress considers its options for surface transportation, the big question is, How will we pay for all of our transportation needs? One answer is transportation privatization. Shirley Ybarra, former secretary of transportation for the Commonwealth of Virginia, will describe actual examples of public-private partnerships. Gabriel Roth will discuss the pros and cons of highway privatization, and Randal O'Toole, author of Gridlock: Why We're Stuck in Traffic and What to Do about It, will focus on transit privatization.
