This study points out the need for an educational program which is responsive to the needs of transportation professionals in California and especially Southern California. This area needs a multidisciplinary educational program in order to meet existing and future demands placed upon transportation professionals. This need is recognized at the national level as evidence by Section 11 (a) of the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964. Professional transportation organizations and individual studies have voiced the need for a multidisciplinary approach to the training of transportation professionals. This study gives examples of successful multidisciplinary transportation programs. The need is indicated for the formation and support of a Transportation Center. Such a Center will be an expression of the commitment of both Universities and transportation agencies to educate professionals to meet the present and future needs.
