Basic characteristics of paratransit services and fundamental issues unique to paratransit are examined, existing problems that are constraining paratransit development are described, and ways to overcome or minimize existing difficulties are suggested. A taxonomy of paratransit services is proposed so that these systems can be better related to each other, and the institutional environment of paratransit is examined from the viewpoints of planning, operation and regulation. Emphasis is placed on the integration of various paratransit services and of paratransit and conventional fixed route services. Several proposals are made relating to improvements in existing services, new service concepts, new institutional arrangements and service integration.
