DOT SECRETARY BRINEGAR: "I CAN SEE A HARDER THRUST TOWARD RAIL"
In an interview, DOT Secretary Claude S. Brinegar discussed the energy crisis and its impact on railways. He predicts a continued growth in rail freight and a strong revival of inter-city and urban rail passenger traffic. The fuel shortage is creating problems in obtaining diesel fuel but it is not yet critical. Brinegar is strongly opposed to nationalizing the railways and believes that the problems can be solved by private ownership. He is also very critical of the present government attitude to urban rail transit. He believes that cities should be required to finance a larger proportion of the cost of urban transit and there should be an incentive program attached to federal funds that would encourage the cities to operate efficient transit systems.
