INSTITUTIONAL CONSTRAINTS ON COMPREHENSIVE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL

From the earliest days the Federal government has played a significant role in the national transportation activities. What has evolved is a parochial view of transportation. The time is rapidly approaching, if it has not already arrived, concludes the author, when the nation can no longer afford the luxury of uncoordinated federal policies and programs in a sector so large and pervasive as transportation. The likely consequences of failing to prepare for a more austere future relate not only to the efficient use of resources, but also to their equitable distribution. With planning, needs can be broadened to include not only the institutions which provide transportation, but also the individuals who must be the ultimate concern.
