INTEGRATED ANALYSIS OF SMALL CITIES INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION TO FACILITATE THE ACHIEVEMENT OF REGIONAL URBAN GOALS

The research focuses upon intercity transportation and its relationship to socioeconomic characteristics in essentially rural regions. The study area consists of the nine administrative planning regions in Iowa that do not include a community of 50,000 population or more. The research objective was to relate the intercity transportation system of small urban communities to their ability to attract and absorb growth. This relationship, as established, suggested a structured set of conditions regarding transportation planning, regulation, policies, and programs that would be supportive of growth in the study regions and in similar rural regions in other states.
