Abstract

The paper examines the question of whether the techniques commonly used in urban-transportation planning in developed countries can be transferred to, and be used effectively in, developed countries. Initially, the paper considers some of the special problems and characteristics of major urban areas in developing countries. The conclusion is drawn that standard procedures are, generally, unlikely to be capable of being applied successfully. The paper concludes by examining some emerging methods of travel forecasting and transportation planning and indicates that some of the newer methods under development hold out much greater promise for transferability. However, the development of new procedures, tailored to the specific problems and issues of developing countries, is advocated. Refs.
