This directory has been prepared to help the elderly, handicapped and others with special needs to find the agency best able to provide the transportation services they require. It presents an overview of services available throughout the Washington metropolitan area and serves as an information source for agencies or researchers engaged in various forms of transportation planning, particularly transportation planning for the elderly and handicapped and others without access to automobiles. Tax-supported agencies, voluntary organizations, health service providers, non-profit and profti making agencies have been included. Distinctions have been made between organizations with volunteers and those with paid drivers. Inclusion of an agency does not imply endorcement; omission does not imply disapproval. The information contained in this directory is current as of June 1, 1975. It will be periodically updated as time and resources allow. Additions and/or corrections are welcomed. For each organization, the following information is provided: contact person; telephone number; eligibility requirements; geographic area served (description of routes and schedules); operating hours; trip purposes; fare; service type; number of vehicles; types of vehicles; capacity of vehicles; number of persons served; percentage characteristics; length of time providing service; and, whether it is a profit or non-profit organization. /UMTA/
