ASSESSMENT OF DEMAND RESPONSIVE FIXED-ROUTE TRANSIT SERVICE: TRI-MET CASE STUDY. FINAL REPORT

Tri-Met is providing demand-responsive service in the Sunnyside area on an experimental basis. This service is more costly on a per ride basis than the standard fixed-route service, but it is also provided in an area that does not appear to be amenable to fixed-route service. In this projext, estimates of cost and ridership for fixed-route service roughly equivalent to the demand-responsive shuttle are generated and used to make comparisons. Both riders and non-riders in the service area were surveyed about their uses and preferences for demand-responsive and fixed-route service.
