The paper treats of the contemporary state and tendences in commuting - a phenomenon of great intensity and significance in Czechoslovakia. The relative stagnation of the intensity of the process is explained more as an outcome of the administrative merging of settlements rather than the decline of the intensity. The author recommends a more detailed investigation of individual commuting regions and stresses the role played by commuting between central places.
