Câu trả lời mẫu cho câu hỏi: How are transportation systems in rural and urban areas different?
Well, to my mind, the main difference between rural and urban transit is that public transit in rural communities is extremely inefficient compared to that in urban areas. First of all, most rural communities offer relatively limited public transit services, which makes rural areas very car-dependent. Secondly, rural areas tend to be more sparsely populated and trip destinations are spread out across larger distances. So transit operators in rural areas have to ensure efficient use of their vehicles across larger distances compared to urban areas. What’s more, in rural areas homes, schools, and workplaces might be more remote and not fall neatly into line with a bus route, whereas cities pack their services and amenities into relatively small spaces. Finally, low population density makes practical and affordable public transport difficult to provide in rural areas. And because of this rural transit systems are dependent on a smaller number of drivers and vehicles, which means one bus being out of service in an urban transit system might not impact the entire network, whereas in a rural setting, this can cause a significant service bottleneck.
