An attempt has been made to catalogue goal statements at each level of government in the U. S. At the federal level, comprehensive transit goals are lacking. The survey of local transit operators and state agencies clearly revealed the tensions existing between service and social objectives on the one hand, and the desire to operate transit in a cost-efficient manner on the other. The lack of a unified set of well-articulated, priority-ranked goals at each level of government has hampered efforts to develop a rational nationwide policy of support for public transit.
