The objective of the demonstration project was to develop a fixed route transportation system in an area of limited mass transportation services, the city of Anchorage, Alaska. Groups served by this project include the elderly, handicapped, Indians, Native Eskimos, poor, unemployed, and youth. Several concepts of the demonstration were: (1) Inner-city circulation which would enable transit users to travel between different areas of the city. These routes provided resident access to health, employment, business and social service facilities. (2) Home-to-work and work-to-home services within the area served by the project. The effectiveness and benefits of the operation were measured and evaluated. Elements of the demonstration included: A take-home passenger survey to determine passenger attitudes, trip origins and destinations; a monthly bus pass, at reduced fares; and a shuttle service from a parking lot to the downtown core area.
