Excerpt

The present study constitutes one volume in the Transportation Center's monograph series on urban transportation.

The close similarity in subject matter of the two studies prompted the decision to combine them into a single volume. In the course of the revision, we added a substantial amount of new material which does not appear in either of the two earlier studies. In addition, the organization of this book differs from that employed in either of the two original manuscripts.

One of the two studies represents a doctoral dissertation submitted to the faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, 1961. This was entitled, Traffic Generating Characteristics of Urban Residences by Paul William Shuldiner. The author wishes to express his indebtedness for the assistance he received from the members of his thesis committee, Professors W. Norman Kennedy and Harmer E. Davis (Department of Civil Engineering), and Professor Donald L. Foley (Department of City and Regional Planning). The study could not have been undertaken without the origin-and-destination survey data for the Modesto area which were so generously supplied by the Highway Planning Survey of the California Division of Highways. Mr. S. Osofsky and Mr. R. D. Bedwell of that organization were particularly helpful in this data compilation. Although it is virtually impossible to list all the people who aided in this study, the author gratefully acknowledges their contributions.

The other manuscript was an unpublished mimeographed . . .
