LIMITATIONS OF PUBLIC TRANSIT IN MEETING URBAN TRANSPORTATION NEEDS

This paper outlines the nature of public transit, the response of the demand for transit to operating policies and presents a set of policy guidelines of use with transit. The author presents the theory that transit should be designed to provide a basic level of mobility in a city and where economically viable, provide for the mass movement of people. The role of transit should not be to get the people out of their automobiles.
