This publication contains five papers that examine various aspects of transportation needs of the poor, disadvantaged and elderly, and the use of public transportation in meeting these needs. Schnell reports on interviews about the most efficient and economical means of insuring the availability of public transportation. Paaswell and Recker identify who and where those without cars are and what transportation alternatives exist for them. Kidder examines the ways social service agencies in a small city cope with the transportation of immobile clients. Weaver and Herrin studied the needs of elderly citizens in medium-sized cities. Dajani and Egan report on income-distribution effects of the proposed Atlanta transit system.
