DIAL-A-RIDE IN CARTERTON, A REVIEW OF RESIDENTS' TRAVEL PATTERNS

The report examines the travelling behavior of the residents of Carterton subsequent to the implementation of a local Dial-a-Ride service which started operations in November 1973. The data presented here is part of a combined TRRL/Cranfield assessment program designed to quantify the overall impact of the new mode on the township. The service is carrying 3.2% of all the in-town motorized trips that take place during its hours of operation. Knowledge of the service and its facilities is widespread. The main characteristic of those households which use the service is their lack of car ownership. They also tend to be from the lower income groups.
