MASS TRANSPORTATION: A NATIONAL COMMITMENT
This paper emphasized the need for a national commitment to public transportation and the need for legislative action to provide stable long-term funding. It is estimated that a $77 billion commitment could provide the systems and rolling stock for public transit to attract upwards of 38 billion trips by 1990. The three basic modes of ground transportation--rail transit, bus, and automated personal rapid transit--are discussed and their relative role and funding needs advanced.
