STUDY OF FUTURE PARATRANSIT REQUIREMENTS: 1980-1995

The report examines a range of paratransit service concepts in context with a set of typical urban settings under three alternative 1995 futures. These alternative futures are described in terms of energy cost and degree of automobile disincentives. Integrated transit and paratransit systems are defined and match a combination of transit and paratransit services with forecasted transportation needs for each individual setting. Using estimated representativeness factors for each setting, the setting results are expanded to provide order-of-magnitude nation-wide estimates of potential future paratransit activity. These estimates are presented in terms of passenger demand, subsidy requirements, and vehicle requirements.
