The primary objective of the study reported was to identify important parameters that characterize multimodal transportation networks and to combine them into a meaningful index of the adequacy of the transportation system. The resulting measure would include railroad, highway, air, and water transportation. An extensive investigation was made to determine the availability of statistics that could be used to describe transportation systems. The study included an examination of railroad, highway, air, water, and pipeline transport data. The information was classified into categories of inventory and performance.
