The article discusses one of the techniques used in the Swidon transportation study. The kit was used to focus on local problems and examine a variety of possible schemes. The kit, aimed at local organisations who had shown interest, was used in conjunction with an exhibitin, a circular and wide publicity. It proved to be an effective way of gathering local comments and explaining the planning process used in the study. It consisted of a looseleaf folder, including maps and artwork used in the exhibition. Members of the public were invited to submit their own transport plan. More than 30 per cent of the 60 kits handed out were completed with realistic plans not differing greatly from those of the study team. The author believed that the most valuable aspect of the kit was that it explained the problems and increased people's involvement in the study. /TRRL/
