It is the content of this paper that two main avenues of approach need to be opened up in the planning of transportation facilities in megalopolis, these being a coherent understanding of each megalopolis as a system and that of a coherent multimode system model of the complete transportation subsystem. Approaches discussed are a method for functional decomposition of megalopolis into subsystems and a system theory model for multimodal transportation networks.
