OPERATING PROCEDURES MANUAL FOR AN AUTOMATED SCHEDULING SYSTEM FOR DEMAND-RESPONSIVE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION (HADDONFIELD DIAL-A-RIDE). PART I. CONTROLLER FUNCTIONS

The two-volume manual is a user's guide for a computer-controlled, demand-responsive transportation system (Dial-A-Ride). The goal of the manual is to provide the information needed by the Dial-A-Ride Control Center personnel to operate an automatic Dial-A-Ride transit service using a Westinghouse 2500 mini-computer, its associated peripheral devices, and its software. The user of the manual should have a thorough knowledge of the operation of a manually scheduled demand-responsive public transportation system. With the exception of the Introduction (which is needed by all Control personnel), this manual is sectioned functionally. The personnel involved will find within their sections all the information necessary for them to do the tasks connected with their functions. Persons operating in a certain function should be aware of sections of the manual, but they will not need them for their day-to-day guidance. Part I contains the telephonist, dispatcher and supervisory functions. Part II encompasses the computer operator's function and the appendices--scheduling function, computer hardware, and glossary of terms.
