THE USE OF EXISTING FACILITIES FOR TRANSPORTING DISADVANTAGED RESIDENTS OF RURAL AREAS. VOLUME TWO

Volume 2 continues the survey of a variety of programs for improving the mobility of the transportation disadvantaged using only locally available resources--public or private vehicles. The vehicles range from small buses to 7-14 passenger vans to private cars. The programs include volunteer drivers in their own cars, leased personal vehicles, subscription service, transportation service by social service agencies, regular fixed-route/fixed-schedule service, and others. The report is a manual for laymen, based on the authors' suggested planning methodology as demonstrated in a Southeastern rural area. Ten alternative transportation programs were examined for their potential utility. The Delphi technique translated non-quantifiable goals into quantified data.
