SHORT HAUL TRANSPORTATION: PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE

The national transportation system of the United States provides for the needs of three kinds of travelers. First the urban traveler who is concerned with getting around in the city, or commuting from there to his home in the suburbs. Secondly, the short-haul intercity traveler who is conserned with getting to points from 50 to about 500 miles away. Particular examples of this type of trip are those occurring in the high-density corridors (such as the Washington-New York-Boston routes), although low-demand levels in this distance range must also be serviced in lower density areas. And, the long-haul intercity traveler who takes trips longer than 500 miles--coast-to-coast or international trips.
