RURAL TRANSPORT AND COUNTRY PLANNING. PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM IN MARCH 1977

The four parts of this book cover many aspects of rural transport and country planning, from the broad social needs, through aspects of structure plans and the economics of rural transport operation to the new experiments which are now emerging. In Part 1: Rural development policy and public transport, the needs of rural communities are considered, together with the place of public transport in structure plans covering rural areas. A case study of rural transport policy in the Netherlands presents a comparison with the British situation. Part 2: Rural transport policy and finance highlights the economic and future policy issues involved in providing rural passenger transport services. Part 3: Public transport operation in rural areas examines the priorities for public transport in the transport policies and programmes and considers the coordination of rural transport and the place of rural rail services. Part 4: New rural transport techniques deals with the various experiments which are being carried out or are proposed in order to attempt to develop new methods of providing rural transport, including the possibilities of smaller buses, part-time drivers, amended routing and timings, and the modification of the controlling legislation. /TRRL/
