Three-quarters of Treasure Valley residents say they want better public transportation, according to a Boise State survey. But with low funding, limited routes and challenges with sprawl, most commuters have to rely on their cars to get around. So where do we go from here?

Idaho Statesman reporter Kate Talerico explains how regional planners are looking to State Street to start transforming what public transportation could look like throughout the Boise metro area. 

She joins Idaho Matters to talk more about reporting this story.
