The report describes planning processes used to establish rural transportation, and was prepared by examining planning documents and operating reports of projects funded under the Section 147 Demonstrations. It examines the premise that good planning and management measurably contributes to the potential success of rural transportation projects. The study examines system planning, startup, management, funding and alteration in separate chapters, and concludes with an overall assessment of key factors for success. These include common sense, a good project director, a willingness to change, vehicle utilization, high trips per person, and vehicle miles of service.
