MACRO-ANALYSIS OF SHORT-HAUL TRANSPORTATION

The report summarizes the findings of a study in support of the Short-Haul Transportation Analysis for Research and Development (STAR Study) for the Department of Transportation. The purpose of the overall STAR Study was to assist the Office of the Secretary of Transportation/Assistant Secretary for Systems Development and Technology (OST/TST) in evaluating and formulating its research and development policies toward short-haul intercity transportation. The study developed a methodology for evaluating the trade-offs which must be made between and within modes as a means of arriving at an approximation of the best answers and applied the methodology to macro-economic, demographic and transportation data to arrive at preliminary selections of best systems.
