MOBILITY OF PEOPLE AND GOODS IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT: MOBILITY OF THE HANDICAPPED AND ELDERLY

An evaluation methodology for the analysis of alternative transportation improvements for the handicapped and elderly is proposed. The approach is based on the ability to incorporate the qualitative attributes of transportation systems which are particularly significant to the handicapped and elderly groups. These attributes include comfort and convenience, security and safety, and accessibility. In addition, this study addresses the issues of demonstration projects planning and offers guidelines for the design of demonstration experiments which can produce results that are capable of objective analytical interpretation. /Author/
