  • Abstract:
    This vision document is intended to summarize what a future transportation system might look like in the period around 2020, and provide some general indications about where transportation possibly may be headed in the 10-20 years thereafter. It is based on optimistic assumptions about (1) availability of Federal funding for transportation research, technology development, and implementation, (2) success in the conduct of enabling research, and (3) effective public-private partnership arrangements to help deploy new technology. This document does not assume, for the most part, significant breakthroughs in energy production technologies. It is not intended to be a specific technology forecast, but to provide a vision of the types of transportation services which might be useful in that time period, based on trends we see today, and some of the most promising technological opportunities for delivering new or needed services. In the process, it will set forth some possible enabling research activities which could lead to the kinds of needed systems.
