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.
