New transportation systems will affect living patterns in the future. Past experience indicates three principles: The availability of new transportation facilities generates new travel; commuting time has remained constant while commuting distances have steadily lengthened; population and industry locate where transportation is available. Examples substantiate each principle. Government policy has replaced terrain and geography in determining the location of transportation facilities. The implementation of multi-modal planning is necessary. Changes in all modes of transportation will occur.
