The report provides a summary of American attitudes toward transportation and various transportation policies, and is based on a survey conducted in December 1977. The survey found Americans expected major changes in their life style and that transportation was supposed to be a major contributor to those changes. The report finds a strong distaste for mandatory solutions to transportation problems, particularly gas taxes or fuel rationing. The public would also seem to support additional investment in public transportation relative to highways, in highway maintenance, and in rail systems. The report contains backup tables, and excerpts from the survey instrument used to develop the data.
