8 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report presents the results of the second-year effort within a three-year research project to develop a transportation planning methodology for small urban areas concerned with the provision of public transportation service. This phase of the research concentrates on problems of access to health services, transportation service for the disadvantaged, potential coordination and integration of existing transportation systems, alternative systems designs and their evaluation, and suitable marketing and monitoring programs for public transportation service in small urban areas. This effort, will culminate in the preparation of a transit planning manual suitable for use by the transportation planner in small to medium-size urban areas
Secondary impacts and consequences of highway projects by Evan Vlachos( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is a preliminary attempt to explore secondary impacts of highway projects by relating conceptual premises with empirical investigations. The rationale arises from the legal imperatives of both the Council on Environmental Quality Guidelines and necessities of accounting for long-range consequences of present projects. What the present document intends to do is to provide some preliminary definitions, and in a systematic approach delineate an approach to secondary, indirect or induced effects. A variety of approaches could help indicate the range of questions on secondary effects as well as the procedures that may contribute to a better understanding of the long-range ramifications of highway improvements. The underlying preoccupation of the document is outlining the conditions that make forecasting of alternative futures both possible and plausible

Proceedings of the National Symposium on Transportation for Agriculture and Rural America, November 15-17, 1976, New Orleans, Louisiana by National Symposium on Transportation for Agriculture and Rural America( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers presented at the symposium were arranged in 6 major sessions and 4 keynote address sessions. The session on transportation of agricultural commodities for international trade found that published research in this area was limited and largely theoretical in nature. Papers in the session on the impacts of transportation regulation on agriculture dealt mostly with trucking. It was found that good trucking performance has resulted from the hauling of agricultural commodities which are exempt. The impacts of transportation regulation on agriculture was covered and it was suggested that the economies of size in trucking and quality and cost of trucking services provided by both exempt and regulated truckers, need to be researched. Extensive research on the relationships among people, commodity and service transport systems and the potential for rural development were lacking. Research papers in the session on the economies of freight transportation in low density rural areas, provided a full coverage of this area, from the measurement of the potential extent of the excess rail line capacity problem to the presentation of suggested methods on how capacity adjustment impacts may be estimated. Analyses of changes in the energy situation suggest an adverse income effect on rural people from increased fuel prices. The adequacy of research in transportation problems affecting agriculture and rural areas was also discussed
