WHICH U.S. CITIES NEED RAIL TRANSIT? BRINEGAR HEDGES

Two opposing programs on the future of urban transportation are being debated in Washington. On one side is the Nixon Administration represented by DOT's Secretary Brinegar that is arguing for the Unified Transportation Assistance Program (UTAP) that will promote buses and discourage rail systems and offer transit subsidies on a population basis. On the other hand are the transit planners and operators that argue that UTAP will provide less money for major projects than is currently available, that population formula subsidies would help the cities that least need it and that other systems than buses must be considered in some cases.
