There is a single transport system operating in the Soviet Union: an interconnected complex of railroads and highways, riverways and sea routes, air routes and pipeline mains. All these transport facilities are the state property of the entire people, and they function and develop under a single economic plan. All these types of transport work on the principles of cooperation and collaboration, without competition, rather supplementing one another and doing one and the same job of meeting the requirements of the national economy and the population, in transportation. When one considers the functional importance of each type of transport, the prevalence of railroads in domestic transportation (especially in long-range deliveries) is seen even more tangibly.
