AUTOMATIC VEHICLE LOCATION AND PARATRANSIT PRODUCTIVITY
In 1995, the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) conducted a study designed to test whether automatic vehicle location (AVL) could be used to improve paratransit productivity. The research was based on a case study conducted at a paratransit provider in Miami. The study found that AVL technology could potentially benefit paratransit systems by providing better and more accurate information relating to productivity and real-time service monitoring. A checklist for paratransit systems considering the implementation of AVL is included.
