COORDINATING TRANSPORTATION FOR THE ELDERLY AND HANDICAPPED. A STATE OF THE ART REPORT
The Urban Mass Transportation Administration initiated this survey interview study of on-going social service transportation projects serving the elderly and handicapped in order to understand the nature of the coordination problems being encountered, namely, at the local level--that is, at the point of service delivery where coordination appears to be most important and most difficult. This report consists of four major sections: (1) An overview of the nature of the problem and the results of an examination of 26 transportation projects, of which 20 have been developed as case studies; (2) preliminary findings and conclusions based on a telephone survey of the 20 projects; (3) preliminary recommendations for future effort and programs; and (4) an appendix containing the survey form for interviews of the special projects on coordination methods (Appendix A), and detailed case studies of the 20 transportation projects (Appendix B).
