COMMERCIAL PARATRANSIT IN THE UNITED STATES: SERVICE OPTIONS, MARKETS, AND PERFORMANCE

This report examines the potential for private, free-enterprise paratransit services to provide a respectable transportation alternative to the private automobiles in U.S. cities. If legalized and allowed to freely compete in a non-distorted marketplace, paratransit could possibly lure hundreds pf thousands of commuters and motorists out of their cars each day, producing real and lasting mobility and environmental benefits. The study also examines regulatory and economic barriers that currently stifle commercial paratransit services in the U.S.
