Abstract : The IDA urban transportation workshop brought together contractors for a new systems study to discuss the results and implications of their findings. The papers present the highlights of the studies and note areas for future research, development and demonstration. Potential alternative transportation modes that appear to be technologically and economically feasible include dial-a-bus, personal rapid transit, dual-mode vehicle systems, automated dual-mode bus systems, pallet or ferry systems, intraurban transit links, and high-density circulation systems. The new systems study recommended research programs to meet specific technological, economic, and political requirements. (Author)
