AbstractOrganizers of the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal had to plan for the movement of three million spectators attending the 16-day event. Directors of the Olympic Park complex, site of the games, requested the National Research Council to assess the pedestrian and transportation facilities during the course of the games. The method of study of crowd movements and observations and conclusions drawn from the investigation are presented.
