STATE LEVEL TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT

WHILE THE FRAGMENTED INDEPENDENT REGULATION OF MODES OR DISTINCT FUNCTIONS HAS SERVED WELL IN THE PAST AS A MEANS OF STIMULATING GROWTH OF THE DEVELOPING TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM WITHIN A STATE, SUCH A STRUCTURE CAN NO LONGER SERVE THE NEEDS OF A SYSTEM WHICH IS MATURING NATIONALLY. STATES MUST NOW VIEW THEMSELVES BOTH AS PROMOTERS OF THE STATE NEEDS AND AS MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. THE CURRENT FEDERAL AND STATE TREND TOWARD COORDINATION AND CENTRALIZATION OF TRANSPORTATION REGULATION MAY CONTINUE TO REVOLVE AROUND THE ENTITY LEVEL OR IT MAY QUICKLY EVOLVE TO THE COMPONENT LEVEL. STATES MUST BE WILLING TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE STEPS WHICH ARE NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN EFFECTIVE FORMS OF REGULATION AND PROMOTION OF TRANSPORTATION. THEY MUST BE READY TO RESPOND TO NEW APPROACHES WITH ADAPTABLE ORGANIZATIONS AND FLEXIBLE, COMPREHENSIVE TRANSPORTATION POLICIES. /AUTHOR/
