AIRLIE XII CONFERENCE HELD AT WARRENTON, VIRGINIA ON 29-31 JANUARY 1976

The Airlie conference highlights the financial requirements of the operating and capital programs of Metro. The following points were emphasized at the conference. Public transportation, while essential to our economic, social, and economical well-being, is a major cost and one that must be effectively managed. Rail construction costs must be kept as far as possible within the current estimate. Bus and rail operating programs must be managed so as to take advantage of every opportunity for increasing efficiency and reducing marginal service. Adequate funds are available to meet the full rail construction costs. To the extent that the full level of costs cannot be budgeted, effective budgetary alternatives must be identified without sacrificing our end program alternatives.
