TRANSPORTATION POLICIES, PROGRAMS, AND PRIORITIES: QUESTIONS OF EQUITY, EFFICIENCY, AND REVITALIZATION OF CITIES

Among the issues addressed in the discussion are: the existance of a pluralistic society precluding discovering which of several courses of action is the "right" one (since each alternative will affect different segments of the population differently); revising the definition of efficiency so that land-related impacts (positive and negative) be included in calculation of costs and benefit; and the need for planners to examine whether by their actions some individuals have been deprived of their constitutional rights) especially regarding travel and mobility.
