The bulletin describes the adverse effects of procedural delays and difficulties on the implementation of new transportation technologies, and suggests some practical solutions to this problem. Two Federal activities of special concern are the Urban Mass Transportation Administration's demonstration, capital and operating assistance, and the Federal Highway Administration's Federal-Aid Urban-System Program. Questions examined include program flexibility, local credibility, matching policies, and the overall complexity of the process.
