NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION POLICY
The need for comprehensive planning, for definition of decision-making responsibility and for adequate transportation funding are discussed in a preamble, concerns relative to the various modes (aviation, highways, transit, railroads, pipelines, transmission lines, specialized transportation) are addressed, the governments role in transportation is examined, and transportation funding alternatives are considered. Some of the principal factors common to various modes of transportation programs are: research and technological achievements, mobility, multiple use and joint development, design, productivity, competition, and safety. Provisions which a national transportation policy should make with regard to the various modes of transportation are listed, and the role played by local, state, federal and special purpose authority are outlined. Transportation funding at two levels (establishment, continuance, and rehabilitation of national networks; and supplementary federal support of state and local transportation systems) is discussed.
