And also, transportation is making it possible for the people to communicate and to improve the culture and quality of life. But now many people are not having accessibility and moving ability in everywhere.The drafting of the strategic regional transport policy which depended on the security of the Right to Transport is needed. So, I pioneered a new research field, the regional transportation.
The purpose of this paper is to propose the scheme of regional transport policy based on the result of verification about the Government's wrong transport policy after World War U and comparison of the foreign transport policies. I proved that the cause of serious traffic problems like car accidents and the air pollution, the decline of public transportation is in the transport policy of the Government. It was clear in the promotion in the use of the car in addition to not having the ability to manage the over-motorized society. Moreover, Deregulation policy has made worsen the traffic problems more, aggravated the working environment of the transport workers and resulted in threatening the safety of the transportation. I clarified these
(1)The lack of the comprehensive regional transport policy caused traffic problems. .
(2)The comprehensive regional transport policy has to be based on the Right to Transport.
(3)To realize the Right to Transport it is necessary to establish the fundamental transport act and the basic transport regulation.
(4)The Government, the prefectures, the local governments, citizens and transport labor union have to share the great responsibility.
(5)Especially it is necessary for the local government to cooperate with citizens.
