The project establishes for people 60 years of age and older what is variously called 'demand responsive,' 'dial-a-bus,' and 'dial-a-ride' door-to-door local transportation service with vehicles specifically adapted to the needs of older persons. The demonstration project, sponsored by the city of Cleveland, Ohio, services three neighborhoods (Buckeye, Model Cities, and Tremont) selected, among other reasons, on the basis of large concentrations of elderly citizens. Seventeen thousand (17,000) persons 60 years and older reside within these three areas which encompass approximately ten square miles. Revenue service began in mid-March, 1975, and by the end of May, 1975, over 21,000 Dial-A-Bus passengers were carried. The report documents the implementation efforts and actual operational experience.
