The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT) is charged with continuously compiling and maintaining a comprehensive master plan for public and mass transportation in the State of Texas. This 1988 biennial report reflects the current status of transit and intercity passenger transportation in the State and the transit improvements planned to provide an alternate form of mobility for the citizens of the State. A major portion of the report presents the expected needs of the public transportation industry for the next five years, and describes the activities within the Public Transportation Fund (PTF) for the years 1986 through 1988. The report details the activities of the industry in Texas for the years 1986 through 1988, describing its improvements and expenditures for that period.

The report includes a segment on Intercity Transportation by both Bus and Passenger Rail Service. Finally, there is a section concerning the issues and recommendations of the SDHPT based on data received from all concerned parties.
