Development of an Accessibility Formulation to Measure Customers’ Evaluations of Demand-Responsive Transit (DRT) Systems: Final Report

This report discusses the application of the paratransit microsimulation patron accessibility analysis tool developed by the University of Texas researchers. The research team worked on updating the Demand Responsive Transit (DRT) Accessibility Tool developed by the Texas Department of Transportation’s Public Transportation Division in Project 5-5178. The primary objectives of this research are (1) classifying the rural transit districts into five distinct categories, (2) updating the DRT Accessibility Tool to make it customizable for each of the five categories, and (3) developing “what if” scenarios for the tool to test. The customization of the tool will make it functional for applications in all the rural transit districts in Texas.
