IMPLEMENTATION AND OPERATION OF NEW DEMAND-RESPONSIVE SERVICES. SPEAKER 4

The transportation agencies of the states of Michigan, Oregon, Wisconsin and Florida are the most involved in demand-responsive transportation (DRT) and active in aiding local communities or transit district with planning, guidance and funding. New Jersey has funded the Haddonfield project, and California has made available funds (from sales tax on gasoline) through the Transportation Development Act (1971) as local option money. The California Division of Mass Transportation provides technical service and identifies the potential for new services after the local decision-making body has established evidence of interest in a public transportation program. California also provides assistance in marketing, information systems, equipment specifications and special services in areas where DRT already exists. The Santa Clara County DRT project which has 325 Program funding (Transportation Development Act of 1971) is noteworthy.
