ENERGY EMERGENCY CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR PRIVATE BUS OPERATORS

A plan is described which is based on the assumption that it should be implementable within a 2-week period from the declaration of an energy emergency. Recommended actions assume the need for retaining the present route structure and are directed toward peak period conditions. The plan considers scenarios with 10%, 20% and 30% reduction in gasoline supply. Three types of actions are discussed in this plan: those under the control of the operator, those controlled by the city, and those dependent on labor organizations, private employers or the state legislature. The strategies described are of two types: those implementable within two weeks of an emergency declaration, and those which require a longer period to implement. This report also discusses information collected from bus operators including operating statistics, the 1979 energy crisis experiences, and the identification of opportuninties and constraints faced by operators in responding to future crises.
