DELAWARE ADMINISTRATION FOR REGIONAL TRANSIT RIDERSHIP AND ROUTE PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS
In the fall of 1982, the Delaware Administration for Regional Transit (DART) conducted a ridership and route performance study of its system. The study objectives were: 1) to collect, update, and analyze ridership and operations data as part of DART's service evaluation process; 2) to diagnose problems in the area of routes and schedules and provide improvements and solutions based upon the ridership and operations data collected; and 3) to update and refine a ridership database from which to continue operationally oriented transit system management activities essential to short and long term service planning. The objectives have been accomplished and DART now has a valid database on the post-1981 transit system. Information will be continuously updated and used; it provides DART with management information on which to base recommendations and decisions.
