HUMAN FACTORS IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

Urban growth and the development of the megalopolis have forced a re-examination of all urban transportation systems in terms of their ability to satisfy human needs and preferences. Encouraging the re-emergence of public transportation in cities requires a total assessment of the physical and behavioral characteristics of the user population as well as their economic, social, and esthetic preferences. This population includes many groups not normally considered in human engineering design, such as the physically or functionally handicapped and the aged. Existing data are reviewed and research needs are identified for the design of urban transportation systems.
