Association of American Railroads
America has one of the most diverse and highly developed transportation systems in the world. Over our railroads, highways and waterways and through pipelines and airways move the most mobile people on earth and the mountains of raw materials and finished products of an intensely productive economy.
Nothing is more basic to how Americans live than this network. Transportation is a $100 billion annual business, accounting for one-fifth of our entire gross national product. It is a primary determinant of output levels, prices, individual living standards and national defense capability.

"There are trends which give cause for concern for the future overall adequacy and efficiency of our transportation system and for the health, if not the very existence, of common carriers."
The Group predicted a major crisis if the trends continue unabated. What's wrong in this vital national industry?
The answers are depicted graphically on the following pages.
