Creating a regulatory environment that supports energy self reliance, would allow the free market to take over transportation.
In the mobilization to fight WW1 the Federal government socialized/monopolized communications, power and transportation infrastructure as “natural monopolies”. In 1984 communications infrastructure was restored to free markets resulting in millions of jobs, vast innovation and better services at lower costs. This success will be repeated when power and transportation are restored to free markets.
Free market and private equity investment in transportation will result in a quantum leap in transportation, similar to what has been experienced in communication technology, allowing for current innovations like Maglev technology to flourish. Imagine traveling from LA to NYC in 45 minutes: Yes it can be done, and is being done overseas.
