RECREATIONAL TRANSIT SERVICE TO THE CALIFORNIA SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS

This is a report on first year operations of a weekend subscription transit service to a recreational area outside a major metropolitan area. In this demonstration, the feasibility was tested of providing a seasonal recreational transit service from inner city areas of Los Angeles to Malibu Creek State Park and Tapia County Park located in the Santa Monica Mountains 35 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. The demonstration service offered access to outdoor recreational opportunities for a large portion of the region's population who are heavily dependent on public transportation. The project was intended to measure the demand for such a service and to demonstrate its economic and operational feasibility.
