REDUCING THE NEED FOR TRAVEL
The report identifies the alternative ways of accomplishing the reduction of urban travel and urban travel needs. The underlying reasons for travel are analyzed. Candidate solutions to reducing travel are described. Candidates are grouped into three classifications: communications substitutes, changes in the location and structure of cities; rescheduling of work hours. A fourth alternative, that of reshaping the need for travel through increases in the cost of travel by auto and re-education of the public plays a major role in the proposed Urban Mass Transportation Administration program.
