OPENING GENERAL SESSION REMARKS OF JOHN W. SNOW
Deregulation dominated the 1980s and with it came increased services and competition. The 1990s may well be dominated by improvements to the transportation infrastructure which is crumbling all around us in many areas. The interrelationships among the various modes of transportation must be brought to the surface and formed into cooperative units providing multimodal services to provide the best means to move both people and goods. Instead of dwelling on needs, priorities should be set and we must use the systems we have more efficiently. User charges need to be expanded, the rail industry, which has been overlooked as the forgotten industry, has experienced a number of improvements and shuold be sought out as an alternative to help alleviate congested highways.
