Abstract: 

The article deals with the human-geographical approaches to the study of regional transport infrastructure, in particular by using the Engel’s coefficient, index of territorial connectivity and, finally, index of regional territorial connectivity, offered by the author. The analysis focuses on the territorial differences (by the administrative raions of Rivne oblast) in the development of transport infrastructure for all modes of transport: roads by type (highways, national, regional, territorial, provincial, and rural roads); railway tracks by type (single-track, double-track, narrow-gauge) and stations (passenger, cargo, and linear); air transport. Further studies of the regional transport infrastructure may imply the public availability of bus and railway transport, as well as a qualitative assessment of roads, railways and rolling stock.

Key words:
