The Directory was created to assist transportation data users, policy makers, planners, researchers, information specialists and others in locating essential information contacts and statistical agencies in different countries. It lists, by continent, 1,751 contact points in 189 countries, plus 36 dependencies and areas of special sovereignties. Data entries were restricted primarily to government and quasi-government agencies and organizations. In addition to these, there are 59 transnational organizations that span the interests and responsibilities of several countries, and in some cases even continents. These organizations are listed separately. The Directory begins with a list of available embassy contacts accessible by electronic mail (email) through the Internet. Following that is presented a special section on transnational organizations. Next, the continents of North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania are displayed as major sections of the Directory, with listings by individual country. The Directory is also available in electronic format from the BTS. It contains expanded information including organization description, notes, and data source.
