Transportation is both a catalyst and a tool in urban development. Mass transportation in the past twenty five years has been in a state of decline which tends to be a detriment to urban society. The federal government is attempting to arrest this trend by research, demonstration and development grants. Large and small cities alike have received aid toward this end. Modest near term improvements are available to existing systems in equipment and facilities. Futuristic innovations are in the research stage. Social and psychological implications of new systems must be considered.
