INTEGRATED ANALYSIS OF SMALL CITIES' INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION TO FACILITATE THE ACHIEVEMENT OF REGIONAL URBAN GOALS. INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION IN RURAL REGIONS: VOLUME 2. REGIONAL FACTORS AND ANALYSES

The volume includes analyses of the structure and development of economic planning regions as typified by the nine rural regions which constitute the study area for this research. Other research topics include studies of the feasibility of a demand-responsive air taxi system and air ambulance service. Mailed survey instruments were utilized to define patterns and characteristics of travel in rural regions and to afford information concerning behavior in response to shortages of transportation energy and attitudes toward such shortages. Recommendations are formulated to address typical transportation problems in rural regions and to enhance their potential for growth.
