The project involves the provision of a specialized transportation service, known as the HANDIBUS, for handicapped and elderly citizens who encounter barriers to existing mass transportation services. The service includes door-to-door transportation at the same fare as the regular city bus service. Special tickets are purchased by qualified applicants. The specialized service is operated by Lincoln Transportation Service, a city-owned mass transportation system which operates the regular city bus lines. This evaluation specifically addresses five primary objectives of the HANDIBUS service: (1) To achieve a high level of penetration of the target population; (2) to eliminate, to the degree possible, existing barriers to mass transportation among the target population; (3) to substantially increase mobility among the target group; (4) to increase community social and economic integration with the target population; and (5) to provide efficient equipment and operating methods for providing the intended service.
