According to a press release, the Transportation Investment Advocacy Center, found online at, features 39 case studies of recent transportation-funding campaigns – both successful and unsuccessful – in 28 states. The center features the television, radio and print ads, polling data, and media and coalition strategies used in the campaigns.

In addition, the site features a blog, which will reportedly be updated with new developments and economic-based research and messaging ARTBA developed to help frame the political debate.
