CITIBUS TECHNICAL STUDY
The Citibus system of Lubbock, TX, has examined its status after a year in which fares were increased and there were major management changes. The fixed-route system was studied to determine the viability of its routes and to identify areas for added marketing emphasis. Because of the fare increase, revenues did go up and ridership did not decline as much as anticipated. Elderly and handicapped travel at reduced fares on fixed-route accessible buses and by-dial-a-ride vans and minibus. The demand-responsive services are overburdened but added equipment should give some relief. Projects which will be the basis of current and future management decisions are discussed: Management information system, Five-Year Financial Plan, market-related data, emergency energy situations, contingencies involving severe weather or other local emergencies, and added service for Texas Tech. Much attention is given to development of a non-Federal transit-dedicated revenue source.
