The Public Purpose

National Journal Honors
The Public Purpose Website

National Journal, perhaps the most prestigious public policy periodical in the United States, selected The Public Purpose as one of the four top transporation related websites, in its 8 December 2001 issue.

The other four cited websites were: - US Department of Transportation - US Department of Transportation Inspector General - The Public Purpose - Surface Transportation Policy Project

The article reviewed 10 websites, including six government and four non-government sites. In describing The Public Purpose, National Journal said:
    Maintained by transportation consultant Wendell Cox, this site serves as the conservative response to such sites as It provides articles and reports debunkiing arguments for "smart growth": It also criticizes the claims made for intercity passenger rail. Moreover, it stores a cornucopia of transportation and demographic statitistics; for example it offers data examining U.S. ridership for rail , buses and airplanes.
Much of the demographic data and land use/smart growth material is now maintained on the related Demographia website.
