AN ANALYSIS OF THE FINANCIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AND INVESTMENT

The focus of the report is primarily on the Federal Government role in urban transportation planning and investment. The study and the organization of the report are designed to explore whether urban transportation planners and decision-makers operating at the local area level are limited by Federal legislation and administrative policies as to the urban transportation options they can realistically examine. It is assumed by the study team that a Federal Government policy that severely limits such options or favors a particular option is inappropriate except when it is clear that the national interest is at stake and priorities should be given to particular alternatives. The study indicates that the current institutional and financial framework does seriously constrain urban transportation planning and decision-making at the local area level and in general terms it has recommended that these constraints be removed where possible.
