In this paper a possible influence of transport on urban and rural development in Bosnia and Herzegovina is being discussed. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, like in other former socialist countries of Europe, urban and rural development had a different importance in the past fifty years. Influence of transport on the future orientation of transport network and traffic courses in Bosnia and Herzegovina and on its geographic-traffic position is being evaluated. Overall economic development of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the past ten years has been marked by several important events, which reflected intensely in its transport as well as regional development. Inheritance that the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina bears from the former country will be a stumbling block for many years in its future rural and traffic development. This is the most evident in the area of orientation of transport network and business relations, as well as in instruments by which economic position of transport is regulated. Construction of new and extension and reconstruction of the existing roads in Bosnia and Herzegovina is an assumption that rural development of economy and population will be strongly affected by transport. It is also important to emphasize that the future economic growth of industrial production and the population growth, as well as development of demand for transport services will have a permanent growth by means of the future more developed transport. A bigger use of Bosnian transit routes by other countries will also have an influence on rural development considering the fact that international transport has been growing more rapidly in the world than local transport in the past decade. Transport system has a big importance in economic and social development of Bosnia and Herzegovina. First of all, it enables availability of all areas thus affecting the rural development.
