Providing a truly multi-modal transportation system for a metropolitan area requires careful coordination of transportation services. One approach to facilitating coordination is reorganization of municipal transportation functions under a single department. Five basic functions must be performed by a consolidated department: administration, engineering, traffic control, planning, and public transportation. In 1973, the City of Austin, Texas, adopted such an organizational plan. This paper illustrates the advantages or organizing all urban transportation functions, and analyzes the experience in Austin.
