TRANSIT PROGRAM FOR HOUSTON

The City of Houston organized the "Transit Action Program" to evaluate the feasibility of specific transit improvements in the Houston urban area. The work and report are a continuation of preliminary transportation and transit planning done by the Texas Highway Department and the Houston-Galveston Area Council. However, Transit Action Program work is the first in-depth investigation in recent times of short- and long-range mass transit needs. The new technical work has been complemented by a major effort to involve the community to a degree not commonly attempted, with significant and satisfying benefits from a better understanding of citizen attitudes and desires.
