In an effort to determine the transportation needs of the elderly and to determine how these needs can be met within the public and private resources of the State, a study was initiated which included a review of current literature, the assembling of pertinent demographic and transportation data from previous studies, and a statewide survey of the elderly. Various alternative systems were analyzed to determine how best to serve the additional travel needs of the elderly. Identification of the most viable transportation systems is followed by their evaluation with regard to economic feasibility, level of service, dependability, physical usability, monitoring capability, manageability, and psychological acceptability. Alternative management structures were investigated and analyzed with respect to the selected combination of transportation alternatives. Funding sources for capital expenditures and operating costs are also discussed.
