Maryland Study of Paratransit Services for Dialysis

Research performed at the request of the Maryland Legislature's Joint Committee is excerpted in this article. The purpose of the study, which was conducted by the Maryland Department of Transportation and the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) in consultation with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Maryland Association of Counties, and the Transportation Association of Maryland, was two-fold: 1) to estimate the demand for paratransit to dialysis centers; and 2) to estimate the required funding if that demand were to be met by public transit agencies. Three areas of data were collected and presented in the study, as follows: 1) the number of dialysis/patient trips; 2) the number of dialysis trips on public paratransit; and 3) the cost of additional trips.
