THE CALL-A-BUS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT--SPECIALIZED TRANSPORTATION FOR THE ELDERLY AND HANDICAPPED IN SYRACUSE, NEW YORK

This report describes, analyzes and evaluates the conduct and results of the Syracuse Call-A-Bus demonstration, in which special transit services were provided for the elderly and handicapped populations of Onondaga County, New York. These services included an advance-reservation door-to-door service for individual users and a group trip service for organizations. Subscription services were also provided. The demonstration was operated by CNY Centro, Inc., a transit operating subsidiary of the Central New York Regional Transportation Authority, during the period from October 1, 1973 to October 31, 1975. CNY Centro has continued to operate Call-A-Bus services under its own budget following the demonstration's termination. /Author/
