The transportation needs of the elderly and handicapped have been met or partially met in urban areas by varied combinations of transit and paratransit services. For the most part, these services have been uncoordinated, and may have been designed and operated for a very specific target group or population. This document denotes the Dubuque experience in the field of paratransit and transit fulfillment of the elderly and handicapped transportation needs, and suggests an alternate path in the attempt to meet those needs. This report includes discussions of travel needs, socio-economic background data, existing services and travel alternatives. /Author/
