This paper discusses an agenda essential to the achievement of a national urban policy and a national transportation policy, efforts that are "the moral equivalent of the space program." The agenda consists of four items: to talk to elected officials, i.e., to inform and guide them; to learn what is happening, for example, in bills affecting transportation; to develop an urban policy that gives adequate consideration to transportation modes and how they relate to population density; and to work on an urban policy and a transportation policy that have interdisciplinary dimensions, i.e., that recognize economics, energy, housing, land use, taxes, and sewer and water policies as they relate to a comprehensive urban policy that includes transportation. /Author/
