This film emphasizes the Florida Department of Transportation's role in shaping Florida's future. It details the department's responsibilities, especially the integration of the entire transportation matrix: air, rail, ship and auto. Futuristic transportation devices such as a fan-propelled high speed train prototype, the Sikorsky "turbo train," commuter jet boats and inner city helicopter connections are introduced as exciting possibilities in years to come. The film ends with a speech from US Transportation Secretary John Volpe. Produced by Goodway Films.
