MAINTAINING MOBILITY: THE PLAN AND PROGRAM FOR REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION THROUGH 2000

The transportation plan reviewed provides a comprehensive refinement and updating of Tri-State (Connecticut, New Jersey, New York) transportation 1985. Such questions as energy, the future growth of the Tri-State Region, and a slowdown in population growth are examined. Emphasis is placed upon adjusting the Region's transportation planning goals and objectives to regional development requirements and perspectives. The importance of the rail network-subways and commuter railroads is considered to be the backbone of the public transport system. Express buses and local buses are also reviewed. The dependency of the Region's people and economy on the extensive network of streets and highways is so great, that a substitute mass transit system is considered infeasible. Alternative solutions to this problem in both communities and business areas are suggested.
