Report Examines Privatization of Air Traffic Control, Roads, Bridges and Infrastructure Funding
In Reason Foundation’s new Annual Privatization Report, Robert Poole, transportation advisor to three previous presidential administrations, details national and global privatization developments in surface and air transportation.
In the aviation chapter, Poole examines the increasing calls for U.S. air traffic control corporatization, which he has been advocating for decades. With 40 of the largest 100 airports in the world either fully or partially controlled by private investors, private airport management and development continues to grow. The report also looks at the status of the Transportation Security Administration’s expedited airport security screening program and the use of private screeners in some airports.
In the roads and highways section, Poole details 30 major public-private toll road and bridge projects in the U.S. and Canada. He also updates state road and highway privatization efforts.
In the financing section, Poole examines how debt funds, pension funds, and special investment funds are being used to pay for infrastructure projects across the globe.
