TRAVEL ANALYSIS METHODS FOR THE 1980S. PANEL REMARKS

There are two major areas in which we see a critical need for more appropriate analytical tools to support transportation decisionmaking at the strategic policy and systems-planning levels. These are the areas of urban transportation and intercity goods movement and personal travel. In the urban area, we need to be better equipped to test policy or system-level decisions by answering a series of "what if" questions, which would need to address the whole range of exogenous, as well as endogenous, variables affecting our traditional views of the transportation supply-and-demand relationships. In the intercity area (nonautomobile mode), we are entering a period in which state or provincial levels of government in North America are identifying a role for themselves that is significantly different from the traditional regulatory one. We do not have the same in-depth knowledge and understanding of this essentially private-enterprise domain as we do of urban transportation and rural highway sectors. (Author)
