AN EVALUATION PACKAGE FOR SPECIALIZED ELDERLY AND HANDICAPPED TRANSPORTATION SERVICE

In order to evaluate the multitude of specialized elderly and handicapped transportation systems now operating in Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Transportation and Construction (EOTC) developed a special service evaluation package. Objectives, measurement criteria, and standards were established, and questionnaires were designed to compare system performance with the measurement criteria and standards. The questionnaires include a ridership survey and a questionnaire for the transportation program administrator. The evaluation package was applied to 11 different special systems operating in the greater Springfield, Massachusetts area for the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA).
