This report focuses on the "regional" transportation systems (Metropolitan as well as non-metropolitan areas) encompassing all modes, operating characteristics and considers the challenge of finding a means of linking the planning for one mode with the planning for another. To meet this challenge, the Commission recommends a nine point program relating to the merging of the federal urban system and secondary highway system into a unified block grant program, the utilization of this block grant, the channeling of funds, the regional bodies designated for federal and roles, state and local financing policies, and the consolidation by Congress and State legislators of established regulatory bodies. Precedents upon which these recommendations are made are stated, and the importance of cooperative intergovernmental relations in the implementation of the recommendations is underscored.
