ATLANTA MODEL CITIES SHUTTLE BUS

In June, 1969, a shuttle transit system demonstration project was initiated in the Atlanta Model Cities area. The model Cities Agency was responsible for all phases of operation until August 1971 at which time the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority assumed a number of administrative functions including promotion and evaluation of the system. This study was prepared as part of MARTA's evaluation to give a complete history of the shuttle service, detail the financial aspects of the service, determine the characteristics of the passengers, and to evaluate the entire system's performance and the promotion program which was developed under MARTA supervision. A home interview survey of riders and non-riders was conducted, covering trip making characteristics of passengers, reasons for use and non-use of shuttle, and to evaluate the results of the promotional program. Survey results and questionnaires are included.
