The conference on Goods Transportation in Urban Areas (GTUA V) held in Santa Barbara, California, during March 6-11, 1988, focused on three major themes—truck accommodation in urban areas; urban intermodal freight movements; and data requirements for policy, planning and design. Three probe groups were formed on these themes with the participants of the conference. The probe groups had in-depth discussions on the respective themes and presented their findings to the group as a whole. The participants also presented papers on such topics as the effect of highway reconstruction on traffic; the role of regulation; and the involvement of trucks in accidents. Together with the group reports, they provide an overview of the many issues involved in goods transportation in urban areas.
