RURAL TRANSIT NEEDS AND FEASIBILITY TECHNIQUES
Members of the Transportation Institute at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University visited 12 rural areas which had operating transit systems. The research team attempted to synthesize the various steps that were taken in the planning and implementation of these systems. A critical and difficult step in the sequence leading to implementation is an assessment of the need for a rural transit system. Once a measure of the need has been developed the rural transit planner is faced with deciding whether it is possible to put together the economic resources and political institutions to make a system feasible. These two steps, collectively called the Needs and Feasibility Study, are the focus of this paper.
