AN INTEGRATED ISLAND-WIDE BUS SYSTEM-VOLUME I: ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

CURRENT SERVICE IS REVIEWED WITH REFERENCE TO PARTONAGE TRENDS, COSTS AND REVENUE, OPERATING SERVICE DIFFICIENCIES, AND PROJECTED MARKET DEMAND. ALL RELEVANT STATISTICAL DATA AND THE SURVEY METHODOLOGY ARE DESCRIBED IN DETAIL. ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS FOR MANAGEMENT, SERVICE IMPROVEMENT, EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENT, AND FINANCING WERE SUBJECTED TO BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS TO PRODUCE A RECOMMENDED PROGRAM THAT ENCOMPASSES FIVE GENERAL AREAS IN WHICH IMPROVEMENTS ARE EXPECTED TO GENERATE INCREASED DEMAND: (1) MODIFICATIONS TO EXISTING ROUTES; (2) DEVELOPMENT OF NEW ROUTES; (3) SERVICE IMPROVEMENTS (ACQUISITION OF NEW ROLLING STOCK, RENOVATION OF PASSENGER SHELTERS AND LOADING FACILITIES, PROVISION OF PARK-AND-RIDE SERVICES, ETC.) (4) PROMOTIONAL IMPROVEMENTS, INCLUDING RESTRUCTURING OF FARES AND INCREASED PUBLIC INFORMATION SERVICES; AND (5) LEGISLATION AND MANAGEMENT. ALTERNATIVE ADMINISTRATIVE OPTIONS ARE REVIEWED IN DETAIL, AND A FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. /UMTA/
