SYSTEM PERFORMANCE DATA PROCESSING FOR A DEMAND-RESPONSIVE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

The report is intended to be a guide for transit operators and managers interested in operating a demand-responsive transportation system and for programmers who maintain the data processing programs. In the broad evaluation of the Haddonfield, New Jersey Dial-A-Ride Demonstration Project, extensive data are required, including attitude data from personal interviews, cost data, and system performance data. The processing of system performance data is the topic of this report. The Haddonfield system was scheduled manually from the start of the demonstration in February 1972 until February 1974. During the latter part of this period, the automated system was the primary scheduling system. The procedures used in collecting and processing data from the manual scheduling system are described. Also discussed are manual system data files and tabulations. The computer programs that process automated system data and the automated system tabulations are presented.
