URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

SUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS TO DEVELOP LONG-RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLANS FOR METROPOLITAN AREAS REQUIRE AN UNDERSTANDING OF TRAVEL OF TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES, AND OF THE STRUCTURE AND GROWTH OF CITIES. THIS BOOK LOOKS FIRST AT BASIC PROBLEMS AND POLICY ISSUES OF TRANSPORTATION. DATA ARE DRAWN FROM THE CHICAGO AREA TRANSPORTATION STUDY AND THE NIAGARA FRONTIER TRANSPORTATION STUDY TO ILLUSTRATE THE THEORY OF URBAN TRAVEL, LAND USE, AND EXISTING TRANSPORTATION NETWORKS. THE MAJOR PART IS CONCERNED WITH DESCRIBING THE PRINCIPAL STEPS OF THE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESS, INVOLVING DATA COLLECTION, FORECASTING, STATING GOALS, PLANNING, TESTING, AND EVALUATING.
