INTEGRATED ANALYSIS OF SMALL CITIES' INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION TO FACILITATE THE ACHIEVEMENT OF REGIONAL URBAN GOALS. INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION IN RURAL REGIONS: VOLUME I. INVENTORY AND ANALYSES

Published in two volumes the research is a continuation of that presented in a report, June 1974 with the same title. The research focuses upon intercity transportation and its relationship to socioeconomic characteristics in rural regions. The study area consists of nine administrative planning regions in Iowa that do not include a community of 50,000 or more population. The objective was to relate the intercity transportation system of small urban communities to their ability to attract and absorb growth. This volume reports on an inventory of the transportation system in the study regions, including an update of data presented previously on bus and rail passenger movements and air transportation. The inventory includes water transportation and additional forms of public passenger transportation, motor truck and rail freight transport, and an investigation into expansion in the transportation role of agricultural cooperatives.
