RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION, FOLLOWUP REPORT OF THE NATO/CCMS URBAN TRANSPORTATION PILOT STUDY
In recognition of the increasing dependence of cities on efficient transportation which preserves urban amenities, the Urban Transportation Pilot Study was proposed by the United States at the 1972 Spring CCMS Plenary Meeting. The Study was approved in February 1973. Projects included in the Pilot Study were: (1) Urban Travel Forecasting; (2) Demand Systems (Dial-A-Bus) Evaluation; (3) Bus Priority Systems; (4) Urban Goods Movement; and (5) Evaluation of Short Distance Transport Techniques. Reports on the five projects were published and distributed in 1975-76. Developments in U.S. cities during the period 1975-77 were summarized in a report prepared by the U.S. Department of Transportation in October 1977. The follow-up report incorporates that material and also describes developments in the other countries participating in the Pilot Study since the initial reports were issued.
