Work is described that was undertaken to provide a basis for defining principal transportation planning tasks that need to be undertaken at the State level, to ensure that such planning is as effective and responsive as possible to the needs of small urban and rural areas throughout the state. Attempts were made to quantitatively define the specific problems associated with the delivery of transit services, to explore possible avenues of solution and to examine organizational working relationships. A survey of organizations showed that there is a high level of agreement that financial problems are the overriding consideration, and service design and operational considerations are the least important problems. Working relationships within the state is the next most important issue. The desirability of state action to support local effort is also indicated. The development of a planning methodology is discussed and recommendations are made regarding the installation of the fare chart. A work plan is recommended for transportation in small urban and rural areas.
