INTERCITY BUS INDUSTRY AND TRANSPORTATION NEEDS

CONTINUING EXPECTED GROWTH IN INTERCITY BUS OPERATIONS DURING THE 1970'S (MODEST FOR REGULAR-ROUTE PASSENGER SERVICE BUT SUBSTANTIAL IN CHARTER AND SPECIAL OPERATIONS AND PACKAGE-EXPRESS SERVICE) WILL REQUIRE EXTENSIVE FLEET AUGMENTATION AND MODERNIZATION PROGRAMS, AS WELL AS MUCH NEW CONSTRUCTION OF TERMINAL AND MAINTENANCE FACILITIES. ANTICIPATED INDUSTRY GROWTH COULD BE HALTED OR REVERSED BY CONTINUING HEAVY SUBSIDIZATION OF COMPETING MODES, I.E., AMTRAK, CHARTER SERVICES OF TRANSIT SYSTEMS, AND CHARACTER- TYPE SERVICES OF SCHOOL BUSES. /AUTHOR/
