SERVICE TO RURAL AND AGRICULTURAL AREAS IN A DEREGULATED TRANSPORTATION ENVIRONMENT

Preserving rural and agricultural America requires resolution of transport problems in terms of levels and quality of service, cost and cost effects, and modal flexibility. This paper examines the impact on rural areas of any change in service regulation and involves questions of abandonments and subsidies. The paper concludes that subsidy is present in the regulated system through internal or cross subsidy; that it will be present in a deregulated system through direct grants. Rail, truck and airlines are examined with respect to local services.
