ENERGY EMERGENCY CONTINGENCY PLAN: WESTPORT TRANSIT DISTRICT
This plan is the result of a short term feasibility study which focused on the development and evaluation of effective short range strategies to expand existing transit services following an interruption of automotive fuel supplies, and it will enable the Westport Transit District to respond to energy induced ridership increases in a timely and effective manner. The report begins with a description of present level of service and inventory of present equipment and resources. The next section contains an analysis of demand for transit services under three fuel reduction scenarios and system capacity analysis to identify excess capacity or capacity restraints under three demand scenarios. It is followed by a description of actions to be taken immediately by the district under energy emergency (short-term) and those actions to be taken under a sustained and slowly developed fuel reduction over a longer period of time (long-term plan). The final section contains a discussion of institutional and financial requirements to implement the Energy Emergency Contingency Plan.
