INTERCITY, BUS, RAIL, AND AIR SERVICE FOR RESIDENTS OF RURAL AREAS
This is a four part study which focuses on intercity passenger service for residents of rural areas, i.e., persons who live outside officially designated urbanized areas. Part I develops the analytical structure for the study and introduces a definitional structure designed to reduce the considerable semantic confusion surrounding the subject matter area. Parts II, III and IV examine the characteristics of bus, rail and air service, respectively, currently provided to rural residents. The bus findings were based partly upon case studies of rural areas in 10 states. The study concludes that the combination of bus and air service usually provides adequate intercity service for most rural residents, and that access to this service is not a major problem.
