SUMMARY EVALUATION OF THE HADDONFIELD DIAL-A-RIDE DEMONSTRATION
The Haddonfield, New Jersey Dial-A-Ride demonstration was instituted in February 1972 to determine public attitudes toward DRT, measure its public acceptance, evaluate its technical and economic feasibility, and measure the impacts of the DRT concept on the community. The purpose of the report is to summarize the preliminary evaluation of the Haddonfield demonstration in terms of what was learned from the experiment while attempting to achieve the stated objectives. The concept had favorable public acceptance, and the improvements in the system parameters, such as increase in service area, introduction of shuttle service, and reduction of fares, caused increases in ridership and productivity. Ridership, productivity, and quality-of-service parameters of the Haddonfield system compare favorably with DRT systems operating in other U.S. cities.
