RURAL PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN VIRGINIA

Travel in most rural areas is now confined to one mode: the private automobile. Those who cannot own or operate cars either do not travel or must arrange, sometimes paying high prices, for others to take them where they need to go. Public transportation should be made available to those in rural areas. This paper analyzes the rural transportation problem in Virginia and suggests how public transit systems can be developed and operated in rural areas of the state. A number of projects are reviewed that are in operation or are proposed for rural areas in other states. The study concludes that, although scattered, sufficient resources are available in Virginia for the planning and development of rural public transportation systems.
