Abstract:

Between 1950 and 1966, long distance passenger traffic increased significantly in the Soviet Union. This increase is examined in the light of government policy towards passenger transport, available passenger facilities, and urban and rural travel patterns. Only trips of 50 kilometers 31 miles or more are considered intra-city transportation is not covered. Future trends in Soviet long distance passenger transportation are discussed, including the growing stock of passenger automobiles and larger numbers of Russians travelling outside the U.S.S.R.
