PRIVATE INITIATIVES SPARK REFORMS IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Changing economic, demographic, and fiscal conditions have helped to precipitate a major reappraisal of urban transportation. In a growing number of communities concerned citizens and public officials are (a) questioning the premises underlying traditional transportation arrangements and customary allocation of responsibilities and (b) searching for new, more-effective relationships. Emerging from this process is a wealth of innovative approaches, based on the principle of public/private cooperation, that promise to bring about profound changes in the way we think about the organization, financing, and delivery of local transportation. The end result of this process may be a fundamental, and in the view of many, a long overdue restructuring and reform of America's urban public transportation. (Author)
