Comments on the value received for the $50 million spent in the past decade for urban transportation studies. The money appears to have been well spent. The studies have given comprehensive consideration to all appropriate modes and facilities within a system intended to serve the overall requirements of a region. Planners and other officials are beginning to think in regional perspectives and in terms of whole systems, rather than in village perspectives and in highway or monorail terms. 12 pp.
