TRANSPORTATION ENERGY CONTINGENCY STRATEGIES. PART ONE. THE PLANNING PROCESS: ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

This three-part report represents an effort by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to provide technical assistance to State and local governments in preparing energy contingency plans to respond to future energy shortages. These strategies are particularly focused on transit, paratransit, and ridesharing (TPR) services. The report provides guidance to those involved in the planning and implementation of TPR initiatives. This study also provides insight and recommendations on how to approach contingency planning. This report, Part 1, describes the organizational process that will help State, regional, and local officials develop a basic component of energy contingency plans; namely, the preparation of various transportation options. The report seeks to provide perspective on the overall transportation contingency process.
