ENERGY STUDIES OF RAIL PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION. VOLUME 3. INSTITUTIONS
The institutional structures of most rail passenger systems have undergone major changes during the past decade because of the decline in private ownership and control and the increase in responsibilities of numerous public agencies-both long established and newly created. These shifts in ownership and control are described and some of the institution-related problems that Federal agencies may encounter in planning and executing future programs for energy conservation in rail passenger transportation are discussed. The principal private companies and public agencies participating in rail passenger transportation are briefly discussed.
