The record of the nation's cities in implementing plans for significant changes in their public transportation systems is strikingly poor. However, there is substantial evidence to suggest that all the important pieces necessary for major programs are available. This paper covers forces of change in urban transport development--sources of financing, institutional arrangements and their impact on decisionmaking; also discussed in urban transportation technology--options for the future, and transit implementation projects in cities.
