DOWNTOWN CIRCULATOR SERVICE IN KANSAS CITY. AN EVALUATION OF DIME-A-TIME

Since a number of cities have or are considering adopting some kind of downtown circulator service, it is useful to describe and analyze a specific bus circulator service such as Dime-A-Time in Kansas City, Missouri. This study describes Dime-A-Time and its history and then goes on to analyze Dime-A-Time by comparing its operations and characteristics with similar service in Cleveland and Denver. A multiple regression model is used to test several hypotheses and estimate the value of the relationships among ridership, fare policy and external conditions. The estimates obtained from this regression model make it possible to evaluate the impact of fare changes. Benefits and costs of various alternatives are discussed.
