IMPROVING URBAN MOBILITY: A DIRECTORY OF RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The purpose of the Urban Mass Transportation'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 principle means of providing this information is to publish annually a compilation of reports on the status of UMTA's 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 report is a supplement to the 1972 volume, and contains updated descriptions of projects sponsored and funded by UMTA. The project numbering scheme used in this volume was changed in FY 72 and conversion tables from old to new project numbers are provided in the 30 June 72 report compilation, but are not repeated in this supplement. The annual volumes that comprise UMTA's RD&D projects are: "Research, Development and Demonstration Projects, 30 June 72" (this report is an historical record of all projects funded earlier under authorization of the Housing Act of 1961, and is available from the National Technical Information Service, NTIS Order No. PB 213-228), and "Innovation in Public Transportation: A Directory of Research, Development and Demonstration Projects, 30 June 1974" and for fiscal years 1975 and 1976 (three separate reports with the same title), which are also available from NTIS. The annual report for FY 1977 will be available within the near future. /UMTA/
