Proper coordination in the design of a transportation system requires consideration of general land use in the area served, and indeed of the entire sociological and ecological fabric of society. Moreover, the designer must help weave this fabric while it is being used. A possible starting place for a transportation study, and some would argue the only starting place, is an overall regional plan. More and more it is being clearly recognized that a transportation link not only satisfies established needs in a region but also develops and anticipates others.
