King County's Regional Trails System (RTS) is one of the nation's most extensive multi-use networks with more than miles of trails for recreation and non-motorized mobility and commuting.

The RTS connects communities from Bothell to Auburn and Seattle to the Cascades. And the RTS continues to grow, with an overall vision of miles of trails. This econometric study covers the latent demand outlook for interurban and rural bus transportation across the states, union territories and cities of India.

Regional economic development entails the creation of new businesses and expansion of existing businesses, in a way that expands the total number of jobs and results in a rising average wage. So regional economic development aims at creating more employment and a rising standard of living in the region, and it seeks to do this through causing.

The Interurban Building, also known as the Interurban Terminal Building, was built in and anchored an electric transportation network that was the largest in the state of Texas and the South, and the third largest in the United States.

The pattern of interurban industrial localization is stable. A current explanatory approach argues that decentralization from large urban areas to mid-sized and small-sized towns is the only process now active and that the basic variables of this interurban decentralization are city size and proximity to or distance from a large urban by: 2.
