A COMPENDIUM OF PROVISIONS FOR A MODEL ORDINANCE FOR THE REGULATION OF PUBLIC PARA-TRANSIT
This report comprises a complete set of provisions for the regulation of various types of public para-transit transportation. Its preparation consisted for five stages: Collection and analysis of the statutes of every state, the ordinances of some 600 municipalities and several multi-state compacts; the compilation, comparison, and the organization and drafting of the sections; considerations of varying attitudes concerning several philosophies of regulation as revealed by the existing regulations; research into the needs which would appear from the implementation of new forms of public para-transit transportation; and the assembly of the COMPENDIUM.
