DIAL-A-RIDE IN BRITAIN: EXPERIENCE TO MID-1974 AND RESEARCH PROGRAMME

The results of small-scale operations of dial-a-ride systems in Maidstone, Harrogate, Abingdon, Carterton and Eastbourne are reviewed. Despite institutional restrictions on the services two of the operations are close to financial viability when all revenue is included in the balance. The plans for an experimenal dial-a-ride system in Harlow are described, and the programme of research and evaluations of dial-a-ride to be undertaken by Cranfield Centre for Transport Studies is summarised. /Author/TRRL/
