This Atlas presents information about rural public transportation services in two forms. The first is a series of maps that graphically display the levels of transit service available to rural residents by state and each of the 10 Federal Transit Administration regions. The state maps reflect county-level data about the average number of Section 18 trips relative to the number of carless rural households in each county. Four categories of service level are displayed: 1) No service or less than 1 trip per carless household; 2) Below-average service levels (less than 25 trips per carless household; 3) Average service levels (25 to 50 trips); and, 4) Above-average service (more than 50 trips). There is also a map of the United States showing this information on a state-by-state basis. In addition to the average number of Section 18 trips per rural resident and per carless rural household, state and regional rankings on both are provided. Accompanying the maps are tabular presentations of demographic data and information about the Section 18 rural providers at the state, regional and national levels.
