COMPLYING WITH THE 1977 CLEAN AIR ACT IN BOSTON

This paper examines the evolutionary development of transportation control strategies, beginning with some very controversial early proposals and including current efforts designed to bring the region into full compliance with the 1977 Clean Air Act Amendments. The implementation of the Clean Air Act program is considered to be an integral part of that transportation planning and development process. It includes the promotion of carpools and vanpools, improved and expanded public transportation services, incentives for carpools and buses, traffic engineering improvements, bikeway planning and implementation, and a state land use policy that encourages the revitalization of urban centers. The paper describes the roles and responsibilities of the federal, state, regional, and local agencies that participated in the development of the Transportation Element of the Statewide Implementation Plan during 1978.
