Balanced transportation has been used to describe a mixture of transport services involving desirable or optimum combination of two or more modes. This article concludes that a balanced transport system has not yet been achieved in any urban area. The author urges that there be better understanding of the nature of problems such as relation between land use and transportation. Decision making processes must be clarified and there should be continued advancement in the processes of planning. More adequate concepts of organization are needed to perform transport- related functions. Broader bases are needed for public financing of urban transport. A greater range of alternatives are available for meeting special requirements of a complex regional transport system.
