COORDINATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ELDERLY AND DISABLED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES IN THE GREATER BRIDGEPORT REGION

Over the past decade, there has been a significant growth in the elderly and disabled populationn of the region, reaching approximately 58,000 persons by 1986. The mobility of these individuals depends greatly upon the network of paratransit services offered by public and private non-profit agencies. This study identifies the size and location of elderly and disabled population, estimates their demand for transportation services, and compares the demand to the network of existing services and present ridership levels. From these analyses, the study recommends a program of improved services based upon the coordination of regional providers, and participation of municipal and private non-profit agencies. This program includes organizational and operating strategies as well as a financial plan for the next 3 years.
