INNOVATION IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: A DIRECTORY OF RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS, FISCAL YEAR 1975

The purpose of UMTA's RD&D Program is to provide information about possible improvements to urban mass transportation systems which communities can use in selecting the best way to deal with their particular transportation requirements. The principal means of providing this information is through annual publication of the compilation of reports on the status of individual projects. Research projects are intended to produce information about possible improvements in urban mass transportation; development projects involve fabrication, testing and evaluation of new equipment, facilities, systems or methods; and demonstration projects introduce, on an experimental basis, new methods, equipment or systems of urban mass transportation into a representative urban environment. This volume is a supplement to the 1972 comprehensive volume. The directory is divided into the following subject areas: bus transit and paratransit, rail transit, new systems and automation, socioeconomic and special projects, transit planning, and transit management.
