There is an introductory surveys of the need for evaluation of urban public transportation, followed by the five formal papers presented to the conference as a setting for workshop discussions. Part III of the Special Report contains the workshop reports describing the general discussions and any consensus reached. Part IV contains the 57 research project statements which were the important products of the workshop groups. The research statements were developed independently by the individual workshops, and thus there are certain overlaps in various tasks of the research called for. An index is provided as a cross-reference to the subject topics of the research project statements. The conferees were not reticent in designation of costs, priorities, and establishment of research urgency. The total suggested costs to undertaken all the identified research in the 57 projects amount to nearly $8,000,000.
