PANEL DISCUSSION OF THE CONFERENCE SESSION AT THE 57TH ANNUAL TRB MEETING

Public participation must be initiated during the earliest stages of the program planning. The existing organizational structures should be employed as a mechanism for accomplishing meaningful citizen involvement and great care should be taken to avoid a segmented concept in the introduction of a new project. Any proposal as complex as transportation pricing should be incorporated with regional or areawide planning. It is difficult to justify radical new concepts without first relating the benefits of such concepts to a total transportation package. The study presented as a great deal of merit; however, it should now be obvious that implementation of such projects will be extremely difficult in the absence of public support. /Author/
