BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS OF INTEGRATED PARATRANSIT SYSTEMS. VOLUME 1: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Integrated Paratransit (IP) is a concept which involves the integration of conventional fixed-route transit with flexibly routed paratransit services to provide the most effective area-wide transit coverage. The report estimates the benefits and costs associated with different IP options in different settings and compares these results with those of other transportation alternatives. Based on the results of the various components of analysis in this study, a variety of conclusions about IP service can be reached. The conclusions suggest that in some circumstances integrated paratransit may be an effectie strategy for improving overall mobility.
