Transportation Information: A Report to the Committee on Appropriations, U.S. House of Representatives, from the Secretary of Transportation.
Volpe, John A.
This report presents an initial five-year program for meeting the critical transportation information needs of industry and government at national, state and local levels. The program provides for information on the flows of persons and goods, information on the activities (population and industry) that generate the flows, and information on the channels (transportation facilities and terminals) that carry the flows. This information would cover all modes of transportation - highway, rail, air, water and pipeline; and all geographic levels, urban, interurban (including regional-corridor), and international. Accident experience information is provided for under information on channels (transportation facilities and terminals), but transportation safety information is not treated comprehensively. The program presented in this report provides for use of existing transportation information programs to the greatest practicable extent. The program also provides a framework for consolidation and reallocation of transportation information functions both within and outside the Department. (Author)
