Tomorrow's Transportation: New Systems for the
Letter of Transmittal
To the Congress of the United States
I am transmitting today a report on the study of new
systems for urban transportation, entitled Tomorrow's
Transportation: New Systems for the Urban Future
Undertaken by the Secretary of the Department of Housing
and Urban Development in accordance with the Urban Mass
Transportation Amendments of 1966, the study has involved
research and analytic efforts over a period of 18 months. It
has explored areas of transportation research and development
to ease the problems of Americans who live in or commute to
work in cities.
The report identifies research and development which
offers promising prospects for transportation improvements in
our cities in the near future. It suggests a longer term
program of research and development, concentrated in areas of
greatest promise and benefit.
I commend the report for study by the Congress and the
concerned Federal, State and local agencies. It provides a
good foundation for decisions upon the program of research
and development required to develop the needed new systems of
transportation for our crowded metropolitan areas.
Signed: Lyndon Johnson, President of the U.S.
The White House, May, 1968
