To establish long-range transportation policy requires, among other things, determining what might be a balanced transportation system and what steps would be required to move in the direction of such a balanced system. This is a difficult thing to do, particularly in a study for which quite limited time is available, since the limits of time and resources preclude much data collection to fill significant gaps in our knowledge.
One primary handicap is the lack of quantitative data concerning much of our transportation system and of traffic movement over it. Filling this significant gap requires a census of transportation repeated at intervals. Until this is done, we will not have a reliable and comprehensive picture of things as they are, or trends as they have been developing. Another handicap is the lack of adequate exploration of the cost characteristics and economic structure of the several modes of transport. Some of the approaches possible to transportation problems at this time are, therefore, tentative and in some degree provisional.
