SELLING URBAN TRANSIT

This article provides transit managers with a conceptual format for designing useful marketing programs, focusing on short-run alternatives available in marketing vehicular modes of mass transit. A flow model for transit marketing programming is presented, and customer profiles developed. Five customer segments are discussed: manager/professional, clerical, inner city residents, elderly, and suburban housewives. Marketing strategy involves the integration of the various components of the marketing mix-product, price, promotion, and distribution to tap opportunities uncovered by segmentation analysis.
