This article seeks to explore differentiated developments in transport serviceability at the level of municipalities and their sub-divisions in Czechia from 2001 to 2009. Two different peripheral rural micro-regions - Sedlčany and Ledeč nad Sázavou - were selected for evaluation. The analysis is based on a number of statistical indicators, such as the index of change between 2001 and 2009 and the coefficient of variability. It is typical for these rural micro-regions that bus transport comprises the backbone of the service network, while railway connections directly impact the “modal split” only in a few small municipalities located along a railway line. In general, a higher degree of fragmentation of the settlement system negatively impacts the provision of transport serviceability by means of public transport.
