FLORIDA STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION DISADVANTAGED PLAN: POPULATION AND DEMAND FORECASTS 1996 - 2015
The Florida Coordinated Transportation System provides trips for transportation disadvantaged (TD) people in two population groups. The first group includes all people who are elderly, disabled, or low-income. The second population group includes people who are transportation disadvantaged according to the eligibility guidelines in Chapter 427, Florida statutes (i.e., people who are unable to transport themselves or to purchase transportation, and children who are "high-risk" or "at-risk". This technical memorandum presents count-level forecasts for Florida's TD system for the five year period from 1996 through 2000, and statewide forecasts for the 20 year period from 1996 through 2015. Forecasts are provided of the TD populations, the demand by members of these populations for TD trips, the number of trips that will be supplied, the unmet demand for trips, the operating expense of the forecasted trips, and the number and expense of the new vehicles that will be required to supply the forecasted trips.
