TRANSIT PLANNING IN A SMALL COMMUNITY: A CASE STUDY

This paper describes strategies for estimating potential markets for transit or paratransit service, developing a potential set of transit system concepts, estimating demand for each of a selected subset of concepts, developing an evaluation process, and selecting an implementation strategy. The case study has shown that there is considerable value in conducting limited, small-scale surveys of specific market segments as well as in developing a wide variety of system concepts in order to permit an effective choice among possible systems. An extensive educational effort is needed for the community participants in the process as well as broadbased community respresentation throughout the process. /Author/
