This report will be of primary interest to highway administrators and traffic planners who are concerned about the present and future service demands on the Interstate Highway System. This study compares the availability and the demand for (a) emergency services which are those normally supplied by police, tow vehicles and ambulances; (b) normal services which are routine services such as gasoline, food and lodging, and (c) supplemental services which include rest areas, signing for directions and services and a choice of service types, brands, prices, etc. Recommendations are presented which should remove some of the deficiencies found by the researchers.
