Abstract : Volume I synopsizes the PPB system developed and exercised by PRC. An executive summary presents the key products of the PPB for transportation and lists some general conclusions that can be gleaned from PPB's initial application. A project summary presents the PPB system in terms of: (1) its unique contribution to the integration of Federal transportation activities and national transportation objectives, (2) its methodology for analyzing resource allocation alternatives, (3) its technique for determining how transportation programs interact and how they affect nontransportation activities, and (4) its comprehensive ability to present an integrated Federal Transportation Program to the President.
