THE AUTHORS ANALYZED THE ROLE OF THE HOVERCRAFT IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS, AND CONCLUDED THAT IT HAS LIMITED USE FOR COMMUTER TRAVEL IN URBAN AREAS WHERE OTHER MODES OF TRANSPORT CAN OFFER BETTER JOURNEY TIMES AND COMFORT. ITS GREATEST POTENTIAL IS FOR OPERATIONS OVER WATER FOR SPECIAL SERVICES WITHIN AN URBAN AREA, WHERE OPERATING COSTS COULD BE BELOW THOSE OF SURFACE TRANSPORTATION. /RRL/
