FINANCING FUTURE TRANSPORTATION NEEDS IN THE NEXT DECADE, 1978-1987; A PRIVATE SECTOR REPORT
This report of the American Transportation Advisory Council (ATAC) on the financing of future transportation needs is based on data from private sector organizations in the transportation industry. It concentrates on the areas of major Federal responsibilities and interest. Needs of the individual modes such as airports, highways, pipelines, public transit, railroads, and waterways are stated. Needs estimates include some private sector investment requirements, especially for railroads and pipelines. A strong effort was made to provide conservative and supportable funding needs figures. In total, it is indicated that Federal support should be increased from the $12.9 billion level in 1977 to a $22.3 billion level in the next decade-an increase of 73.5 percent. Descriptions are given of the following funding options: unified transportation funding, trust funds, user charges, energy tax, other tax sources.
