CHARLOTTE COUNTY TRANSIT DEVELOPMENT PLAN. TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NO. 4: DEMAND ESTIMATION AND NEEDS ASSESSMENT

Before Charlotte County can choose a specific strategy for providing public transportation, there must be an accurate understanding of the potential demand for service and the level and type of unmet mobility needs of the community. The objective of Technical Memorandum No. 4 is to develop demand estimates and to quantify mobility needs for the study area. The assessment of transit demand and mobility needs will help to determine whether service options outlined in Technical Memorandum No. 5 will be responsive to the needs of the community. The tasks of estimating demand for transit and mobility needs of the community are more difficult in the case of Charlotte County because there currently is no fixed-route service, however, there is existing paratransit service, which can serve as a starting point.
