Hamburg is making serious efforts to solve the transporta­tion problem, common to most European cities-how to provide facilities to meet the rapidly increasing requirements of modem transportation and, at the same time, preserve the city's values by maintaining historic and other buildings, structures, and, particularly in the central area, its character. Being a large and relatively rich city with progressive ideas, Hamburg has accom­plished some remarkable achievements in this field. The purpose of this article is to delineate some of those achievements, particularly in public transportation.
