The author describes the access system from the suburbs of Buenos Aires into the city center, evaluating the volume of traffic and subdividing it for peak periods into the three flow generators of the North, West, and South. He lists Buenos Aires' first priority in solving its traffic congestion flow as the modernization of interurban railroad services because of its ability to move large numbers of people. He also recommends establishment of regular helicopter services for commuters, which he maintains would be faster and less costly than the provision of toll highways. Five helicopters would be used in the North, four in the West, and three in the South. The author urges official organizations to study this advanced transportation concept in depth and establish its economic feasibility. (Author)
