  • Abstract:
    In support of the Department's Strategic Planning effort in the Office of the

    Secretary, the Transportation Strategic Planning and Analysis staff of the

    John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center conducted aseries of

    eight one-day seminars during the month of December 1991 in Cambridge,

    Massachusetts, Washington, D.C. and Kansas City, Missouri.

    The purpose of these meetings was to update and expand the Department's

    knowledge and understanding of conditions in the overall transportation

    environment and recent developments affecting transportation in the United

    States and internationally. Attendees at the seminars included representatives

    from major transportation users, providers and suppliers; state and local

    government agencies such as state Departments ofTransportation and

    Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs); academics and other

    transportation experts and analysts; and officials from theVolpeCenter, the

    Office ofthe Secretary andthe various Department of Transportation

    operating administrations.

    Four seminars were organized on market areas, and fourseminars on

    cross-cutting themes. For each seminar, participants were sent an "Issue

    Paper" suggesting topics forthe meeting, along with background information

    and suggested key questions for each of these topics. These Issue Papers

    were prepared by the Volpe Center staff, solely for the purpose of suggesting

    important issues which seminar participants mightbeinterested in pursuing

    during the meeting.

    A non-governmental transportation authority served as facilitator foreach

    seminar meeting. The facilitators introduced each session, posed questions,

    andchose participants to speak. The Department ofT ranspoitation is

    grateful for the helpful andprofessional service each facilitator rendered in

    this seminar series.

    This publication presents summaries of these eight strategic planning

    seminar. The "Background" section for each major issue is exerpted from die

    Issue Paper distributed to attendees priorto the session. The "Seminar

    Discussion" section for each major issue is a summary of the general flow of

    the discussion on that major issue and of the thoughts and comments that

    arose in that session. This report, therefore, does not reflect the policies or

    positions of the Department of Transportation.
