Transportation, Spatial Interaction, Telecommunication and Information Systems: A Research Agenda

  • T. J. Kim

The general view in a mixed economy is that some goods and services are produced privately and some, such as transportation, are produced publicly. Private institutions, such as households and entrepreneurs, produce and consume goods and services in pursuing their parochial interest, while the public sector attempts to broaden public interests. Thus, at least two parties are involved in the decision-making processes regarding transportation: the public sector that constructs new transportation systems, improves thencapacities, and regulates services and prices; and the private sector that chooses the locations of production, modes of transportation, and routes of shipment. At the same time, all forms of transportation influence our lives and give us cause for concern for our environment, health, and safety. Although transportation is intimately interwoven with the daily lives of all individuals and organizations in our society, it is easy to overlook its significance until it fails us in some way (Schofer and Boyce, 1985).
