Attention at the conference focussed on the interrelationships between low income, race, housing location and transportation needs, as well as the means of alleviating transport dependence through the provision of new systems, and redesign of current systems such as mass transit, taxis, jitneys as well as novel systems. Jobs and transportation and income redistribution and transportation were well developed themes. Various experimental efforts under the Urban Mass Transportation program were described. The concern with the budgetary limitations of such programs was expressed. No definitive answers were found. Each city has unique problems but the conference yielded some common insights into the problem of providing mobility to the poor in our cities. (BPR abstract)
