The Haddonfield (New Jersey) Dial-A-Ride Project is one of about 60 demand-responsive transportation systems currently being used throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Haddonfield Project was designed, implemented and operated as a research and development project to determine the feasibility of a demand-responsive door-to-door transportation service. The prime pbjective of the Project was to obtain accurate and reliable data for evaluation of the Dail-A-Ride concept. This final report delineates project direction, beginning February 19, 1972 and ending June 30, 1974. It details ridership trends, vehicle productivity, service quality, revenues and costs of operation. The report includes a quantity of graphs, charts, and tables that show the effects of zonal mode of operation, and the elimination of the shuttle service. The main objectives of the Project covered by this report were to: (1) provide accurate data for demand and cost analysis; (2) determine the degree of public acceptance of demand-responsive transit systems; (3) determine limits of a manually controlled scheduling system: (4) determine system parameters for a computer-controlled scheduling system; and (5) test the developmental computer-controlled scheduling system. Appendices contain a list of Haddonfield Dial-A-Ride reports and data collection and analysis procedures. /UMTA/
