About this Item

[10], 378 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams. Printed at The Richard B. Cross Company, Oxford, IN. This volume atempts to highlight the influence of transportation on human beings. It stresses what might be termed human relations problems within the industry as well as the relation of the transit system to slumes and ghettos. The predominant theme is therefore concern for peole and how changes in transportation is contributing to improvement of the human condition. From the TRF website: "A small group of transportation researchers in New York started the Transportation Research Forum in March 1958. Monthly luncheon meetings were established at that time and still continue. The first organizing meeting of the American Transportation Research Forum was held in St. Louis, Missouri in December 1960. The New York Transportation Research Forum sponsored the meeting and became the founding chapter of the ATRF. The Lake Erie, Washington D.C., and Chicago chapters were organized soon after and were later joined by chapters in other cities around the U.S. The TRF currently has about 300 members. With the expansion of the organization in Canada, the name was shortened to Transportation Research Forum. The Canadian Transportation Forum now has approximately 300 members. TRF organizations have also been established in Australia and Israel. In addition, an International Chapter was organized for TRF members interested particularly in international transportation and transportation in countries other than the U.S. and Canada. Interest in specific transportation-related areas has recently encouraged some members of TRF to form other special interest chapters, which do not have geographical boundaries-Agricultural and Rural Transportation, High-Speed Ground Transportation, and Aviation. TRF members may belong to as many geographical and special interests chapters as they wish." The TRF Purpose statement in 1968 was: "The Transportation Research Forum is a joint endeavor of interested persons in academin life, government service, business logistics, and the various modes of transportation. The Forum's purpose is to provide a common meeting ground or forum for the discussion of ideas and research techniques applicable to economic, management and public policy problems involving transportation.".
