The report demonstrates the current concept of citizen participation in transportation by an analysis and evaluation of four multi-modal transportation projects that have involved citizen participation programs. The selected projects are: (1) Proposed Pulaski Expressway, which demonstrates an extensive citizen participation effort in the development of the Environmental Impact Statement for the planned urban freeway link; (2) New York-Philadelphia AMTRAK Service, which illustrates the citizen participation efforts in formal public hearings; (3) West Chester Pike Bus/Carpool Lane, which originated from a mandate of the Clean Air Act and involved citizens in a project feasibility determination for a plan that would benefit a metropolitan downtown area at the expense of suburban inconvenience; and, (4) Lindenwold High Speed Line, which involved a voluntary citizen participation process for a fare increase proposal.
