SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE IN THE UNITED STATES

Several types of subscription bus and subscription van services are described, cost and revenue data are presented for comparison purposes, and recommendations are made for the improvement of the climate for the growth of such services. Subscription services have been proven to be attractive transportation services that can carry a significant number of peak period commuters. Although the demand for the service appears enormous, legal, regulatory and institutional constraints act as obstacles to the implementation of such service. It is recommended that urban transportation services (fixed route transit, subscription etc.) should be coordinated by a public transportation provided who will have the authority to provide the most appripriate service to meet an identified need.
