This conference, sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and the Transportation Research Board, examined the options available for maintaining future urban mobility. Its purpose was to bring together experts to (1) review the status of our current knowledge with respect to recent historical trends in urban development and transportation and their interaction with economic and demographic forces, (2) discuss solutions and innovative institutional and technical approaches to provide for future urban mobility, and (3) identify research needs to aid in the analysis, development, and implementation of such solutions. Resource papers were commissioned on the following topics: housing and jobs; financing; decision making; energy and environment; options; and urban design. These proceedings consist of the conference overview by Alan E. Pisarski, the keynote address by David F. Schulz, the six resource papers, and five workshop reports which discussed the same topics covered by the authors of the resource papers. The findings from this conference will be expanded by the Transportation Systems Center, U.S. Department of Transportation, in order to develop a comprehensive research agenda on the topic of transportation, urban form, and the environment.
