Departmental Papers (ESE)


The 1985 Regional Transportation Plan of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (Plan Report No. 5) is one of the most detailed and informative reports published to date by a transportation planning agency. The Report reflects several advances in urban transportation planning procedures made by DVRPC. Nevertheless, the Report does contain a number of very serious deficiencies.

In an attempt to make a constructive contribution to transportation planning in the Delaware Valley Region, the authors of this Critique analyze these deficiencies and propose general and specific improvements for the Transportation Plan.
