SUBSIDIARY TRANSPORTATION: ITS ROLE IN REGIONAL PLANNING

Transportation planning in cities and metropolitan regions can contribute directly to meeting the transit needs of special groups and communities now being overlooked by generalized transit systems, without relying on expensive nationally funded studies. Improvements in transportation development can arise from application on a broad scale of experiments already under way that are demonstrating some effective new arrangements for transit service. This article suggests how an examination of existing subsidiary transit services, such as car or bus pools and subscription buses, which are designed to complement primary/secondary systems, might be organized as a useful input to transportation planning; describes the kinds of transit operations that might be included in such an examination; and outlines the types of information that should be obtained about them. The objectives of the proposed approach are to speed transportation innovation and introduce greater flexibility in urban development.
