Transportation quality describing the space-time system, is re-influenced by the space-time system itself. Its complex form may be explained by various closed loops. Indicators, such as accessibility, opportunity for communication at some location, availability of means of transport: all these are figures to describe the quality of transport as a space-time determinant, and they may be used as evaluation criteria in a decision process. The advantage of location (as a level of communication) influences degressively the socio-economic production (the standard of living) of regions. Besides, in regions with a socio-economic production above the average, already small steps in infrastructural programs let expect outstanding rates of growth in their socio-economic production. /Author/
