TOWARD 2000: OPPORTUNITIES IN TRANSPORTATION EVOLUTION

This report describes possible directions for the Nation's transportation system evolution, and identifies research and development strategies to take advantage of the most promising opportunities. The document begins with a brief examination of population and demographic trends, and makes some conjectures about the future. The report then examines transportation opportunities in five major areas: urban transportation, intercity transportation, the private automobile, freight-systems, and cross-cutting issues such as decision-making. The report also includes general discussions of the relationships among transportation changes in the spatial organization of the nation (land use), and the use of resources: energy, labor, and capital.
