CAN THE INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM ACCOMMODATE THE DEMAND DURING AND ENERGY SHORTAGE?

This paper assesses the amount of excess capacity available in the intercity transportation system by examining what the system consists of, how it is being used, what its capacity is under existing (1977) service levels, and what its capacity could be if it were used more intensively. It is concluded that considerable excess capacity is available and could be made usable by focusing sufficient managerial and logistic talent in order to develop plans for utilization of that capacity.
