Recent years have seen increasing application of operations research methods to problems in transportation engineering. This paper outlines briefly some of the techniques used in solving problems in linear programming and transportation networks. Its objective is to stimulate interest among civil engineers in this relatively new tool for solving multi-variable problems, rather than to give a detailed exposition thereof.
