TRANSIT ANALYSIS

Using the transportation problems faced by California as examples of the problems which various transportation planning agencies might be faced with, this paper points out some of the areas where there is a need for evaluation criteria. It is found that such criteria are needed for defining roles, for judging the adequacy of existing and proposed programs, for resolving the debates between facility and service strategies and between the commuter and the transit-dependent, and for help in analyzing the impact of labor costs and the role of the private sector. Also, evaluation criteria are needed that will allow people at the neighborhood level to control the institutions providing transit service.
