SOME PRIORITIES IN TRANSPORTATION
Important elements in the formulation of a transport policy and the ensuing identification of priorities include: co-ordination, integration, fairness, optimum use of resources, development and organization of the territory. However it is difficult to prescribe priorities in an isolated way, on account of the many interrelations between the various components of the transport "function" and, also, on account of the interdependence of transport with other areas of the national economic activity. The author looks at these problems in describing the transport priorities in the upcoming months and years in the province of Quebec.
