This paper concentrates on 3 aspects of the relation between transportation and its environment in France: (a) means used to apportion the external losses and benefits of a transportation investment among the parties involved; (b) measures used to improve public transportation operations in major cities (an employer tax that rests on the premise that employers benefit from the existence of public transportation and should pay for it); and (c) the fact that transportation is a servant of other human activities. A strategic scheme is presented for relating regional planning to transportation. /Author/
