THOUGHTS ON THE MERITS OF TRANSPORT-PLANNING PACKAGES

Transport-planning packages are increasingly being reappraised for technical content and role, in the current climate of capital rationing and short-run planning horizons. This paper outlines in a broad manner the major roles of established packages and suggests the major areas of deficiency, given that the present perceived planning emphasis will hold in the future. The important distinction between the concept of packages per se and the particular models used therein is emphasised. Particular reference is made to the improved urban transportation planning system (UTPS) package of the U.S. Department of Transportation (1977). /Author/TRRL/
