In 1986 there is increasing evidence of the soundness of new rail transit projects. Ridership is generally up for light rail, rapid transit and commuter railroads. Highways are found lacking the capacity to serve radial commuting movements in major metropolitan areas.

Transit agencies are now being funded by means which overcome some of the loss of support from federal sources.
