The paper outlines major considerations in developing and implementing a national transport energy program. It briefly reviews the nature of energy issues in transport and the major responses which may be available. Particular emphasis is given to the need for co-ordinated action within the complex structure of institutional responsibilities in transport. In view of the theme of this conference and the prominent position of the motor car in our transport system, a particular option, namely, improving the fuel efficiency of the automobile, is used to illustrate some broad considerations that need to be addressed in working towards a co-ordinated national transport energy program. /Author/TRRL/
