RURAL COMMUNITIES: THE TRANSPORTATION DILEMMA
In addressing transportation considerations in rural development, an effort has been made to highlight some of the major areas of difficulty associated with the provision of an adequate transportation system to facilitate growth in nonmetropolitan areas. Transportation is a very necessary condition for rural development, but an adequate transportation infrastructure is not sufficient for that development to take place. The report discusses the growth of light industry, changes in transportation mode such as rail to trucking, and population shifts.
