Abstract:

Primary responsibility for transportation planning has moved from private industry to government. This shift has occurred as a result of growing awareness of the interdependence of transportation planning with all other aspects of the urban planning process. Decisions are no longer based solely on the economic advantage of the operator, but now are governed primarily by community-established acceptance criteria covering a wide range of social, economic, environmental and service impacts. The paper presents a discussion of governmental responsibility and strategy options, which may help to clarify some of the complex issues which face all levels of government as these new roles evolve.
