TRANSPORTATION AND THE CITIES

The purposes of the seminar were two: first, to evaluate how far conclusions and recommendations adopted by the first seminar have been accepted by governments and implemented in practice and, in doing so, to learn what lessons have been learned; second, to provide opportunities for further intergovernmental exchange of information and experience related to comprehensive approaches to planning and to management of urban transportation. The seminar dealt with the following specific topics: (1) the changing role of transportation; (2) urban transportation, policies, and objectives; (3) institutional competence, legislation, financial, and other socioeconomic measures to guide transportation developments; (4) community relations and citizen involvement in urban transportation planning and programming; (5) planning measures to promote a balance among traffic and transportation modes with special regard for the human scale; and (6) urban transportation research policies, planning, and assessment of technology.
