NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION POLICY PLANS--A CRITIQUE

Certain basic questions underlying A.L Webster's paper on transportation policy plans are highlighted. Specifically the questions are: (1) Why is it that the public sector has such a mixed record of meeting, with any kind of reasonable efficiency, its stated targets or goals in transportation? (2) How might we devise a better method of unwinding the tangled affairs of regulation so as to make a transition from the present confused an inefficient state of affairs to a more market-oriented and responsive transportation sector? (3) How can we obtain a better fix on just how much we Americans really do value mobility (in both passenger and freight activites)? /GMRL/
