TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION

AN INITIAL FIVE-YEAR PROGRAM IS PRESENTED FOR MEETING THE CRITICAL TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION NEEDS OF INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT AT NATIONAL, STATE AND LOCAL LEVELS. THE PROGRAM PROVIDES FOR INFORMATION ON THE FLOWS OF PERSONS AND GOODS; ON THE ACTIVITIES (POPULATION AND INDUSTRY) THAT GENERATE THE FLOWS; AND ON THE CHANNELS (TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES AND TERMINALS) THAT CARRY THE FLOWS. THIS INFORMATION WOULD COVER ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION - HIGHWAY, RAIL, AIR, WATER AND PIPELINE; AND ALL GEOGRAPHIC LEVELS - URBAN, INTER-URBAN (INCLUDING REGIONAL-CORRIDOR), AND INTERNATIONAL. TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION NEEDS, PARTICULARLY AS RELATED TO THE TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS, FORECASTING, PLANNING AND POLICY MAKING NEEDS OF GOVERNMENT AND INDUSTRY ARE EXAMINED. THE FULL INITIAL TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION GROGRAM ON A FIVE-YEAR COMPLETION BASIS IS OUTLINED AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION IS DISCUSSED. POSSIBLE FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS IN TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION ARE EXPLORED. /AUTHOR/
