The 111 citations in this Special Bibliography concern the involvement of the private sector in fixed-route transit and paratransit at a time when government support for public transportation is often declining while capital and operating costs are climbing. Until 25 years ago, the private sector was responsible for much of public transit in the United States. In the ensuing years, this situation has turned around completely. Now transit and government agencies are again looking to private sector for possible solutions to some of their problems. The abstracts of technical reports and journal articles in the Special Bibliography are generated from the UMTRIS subfile of the Transportation Research Information Services data base and cover generally the period 1982 to 1985.
