DEMAND RESPONSIVE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM FOR THE EAST/NORTHEAST AND WATTS MODEL CITIES NEIGHBORHOODS

The report documents activities and operations of Demand-Responsive Transportation Projects in the East/Northeast and Greater Watts Model Cities Neighborhoods from May 1, '73 to Oct. 31, '73. The project was designed to demonstrate that a demand-responsive public transportation system using subscription techniques could be a successful and important service in supplementing existing fixed-route bus operations. A fleet of 12-passenger, radio-dispatched vans would provide low fare transportation (0.15). Operating data describing ridership, revenues, travel characteristics, types of pick-ups and general performance in terms of wait and travel times are included. Funds expended and estimated monthly operating costs are delineated. Productivity measures are evaluated.
