  • Abstract:
    Many of the innovations in urban transportation currently being attempted in the United States first appeared in European cities. The purpose of this report is to summarize and assess several of these European transportation innovations and to relate them to changes occurring or contemplated in the United States. Five areas of innovations are treated specifically: central city traffic rerouting and restraint; integrated transit; HOV priority treatment; coordination of transportation and land use; and, residential neighborhood traffic restraint. In-depth case studies of five European cities chosen for their innovativeness and diversity in urban transportation and land use concepts are presented. The cities, Paris, Munich, Delft, Gothenburg and London, represent small, medium and large cities, each with unique ideas about providing mobility and a quality environment to their citizens. In 1979 the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development organized a seminar on urban transportation and the environment. The results of the seminar are summarized in several appendices.
