In the winter of 1973-74, the author provided advisory services to the South Vietnam Ministry of Public Works on transportation planning techniques. He installed the program packages of the Federal Highway Administration on urban transportation planning and the Urban Mass Transportation Administration on transportation planning system on computers in Saigon and instructed South Vietnamese personnel in the use of the packages for a long-range planning study they wished to conduct. Transportation in Saigon in 1973 and 1974 and major differences of Saigon and Western traffic composition are discussed. Some of the long-range planning alternatives considered in Saigon are presented. Some of the problems associated with applying the U.S. Department of Transportation planning packages in a remote location also are presented. /Author/
