EDUCATION IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS PLANNING
The past few years witnessed profound changes in the basic manner in which transportation services are viewed, developed and operated. The passage of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1968, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1970, the expansion of programs in urban mass transit, and a rising level of concern on the part of the public have all led to a new set of rules and directions for those actively engaged in the provision of transportation services. These changes have led to protection of parklands, TOPICS studies, environmental impact statements, noise and air pollution studies, relocation assistance programs, capital grants for mass transit, citizen participation panels, joint use projects, demonstration projects for innovative transportation systems, and so on. These changes are having substantial impacts on transportation education programs at many universities, and have already created a need to incorporate a broader array of subjects into the curriculum.
