The planning process can be broadly classified into: the goal formulation and decision making process; the plan development process; and the plan implementation process. Urban transportation planning should ideally be set up as a governmental body in which all urban transportation would be dealt with on a regional basis. Each function of the mass transit administration should be clearly defined and organized into a unit responsible for the function alone, and each one of these units should be headed by a single responsible director. The interdependency of transportation functions and urban development should be recognized and headed by an administrative authority. The paper includes a case history to illustrate the complex nature of the planning process.
