This excellent book deals with transportation service interaction between carriers (providers of rail, truck, bus, and airplane service) and the users of those services in low traffic density markets. The book educates the reader rather than attempting to persuade the reader to a point of view. It deals largely with changes occurring in transport regulation and technology in the decade of the 1980s and their impacts on services to smaller communities.
