COMMUNITY TRANSPORT: POLICY, PLANNING, PRACTICE. CHAPTER 1: THE HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF COMMUNITY TRANSPORT

The development of community transport and the reasons for its rapid growth in the past two decades are explored in this introductory chapter. The history and evolution of community transport is traced and the organisation of a variety of services described primarily from a United Kingdom perspective. From an analysis of their operations and the changing environment within which they operate, their contribution in the domain of public transport services is evaluated and the scope for future development examined. Recent trends are considered and a context provided for the issues covered in the following chapters. The services considered include social car schemes, group hire minibus projects and dial-a-ride services. For the covering abstract see IRRD 875321.
