TRANSPORTATION IN RURAL AMERICA: HOW ARE WE DOING?

This article describes the barriers to affordable and reliable rural area transportation. Rural areas typically have more disabled, elderly, and unemployed persons than do other areas. Ironically, less than 10 percent of federal spending for public transportation goes to rural communities. Regional development organizations are becoming partners in transportation planning for some states. By working with these organizations, states can be better informed about local citizens' wants, needs and what they are willing to support.
