URBAN DECENTRALIZATION AND THE ROLE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
The overall purpose of the study is to explore the opportunities and difficulties that are likely to occur during the near-term if a transition is to be made in terms of the "future directions of public transportation." The study examines the recent transportation planning and implementation experience in a number of urban areas in order to discern how well urban America is prepared for a likely future scenario of continued population decentralization.
