ENERGY USE OF PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEMS
The amount of energy used by a variety of transit modes operating under different conditions is determined. Projections of energy availability in California through 1985 and 1990 are reviewed and the implications for transportation are discussed. A short summary of the ways in which vehicles use energy, and an analysis of the resulting implications for energy-limiting or conserving strategies are given. Energy consumption data for a wide variety of vehicles operating in a number of modes are compared in a way that allows the reader (planner) to know relative energy requirements of different systems.
