TRENDS AND CHOICES FOR INTERCITY PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION IN AN ERA OF RESOURCE STRINGENCY--A PROBLEM POSED

Common-carrier rail and bus transportation represent technologies of proven worth for expansion in an age of resource shortage. They can provide an alternative to the private auto for intercity travel and a substitute for air travel in dense corridors. Bus service, coordinated with major air and rail routes, can provide an augmented, resource-effective substitute for light-density air and rail routes. Industry structure of the rail and intercity bus operators, combined with extensive federal regulation, has discouraged development of coordinated service. The author suggests that solutions are possible.
