KCMR DIAL-A-RIDE STUDY: REPORT NUMBER 3. PERSONNEL AND TRAINING FOR DIAL-A-RIDE

This study is comprised of 6 reports that encompass all of the major facets of a demand-responsive system. It is designed to assist the Mid-America Regional Council and local government agencies in the detailed service planning of Dial-A-Ride services in the Kansas City Metropolitan Region. A small pilot system was applied in Independence, Missouri, and a larger pilot system was applied in Johnson County, Kansas. Report No. 3 is aimed at providing prospective operators of relatively small Dial-A-Ride systems with tested and workable guidelines for the recruitment, scheduling, and training of personnel. It describes the basic personnel operations of the small and large systems, and lists the necessary duties of management. Sample lesson plans, training sessions, map and routing exercises, dispatcher and driver evaluation checklists, and a self-training worksheet are included. It was found that Dial-A-Ride service to the general public should be seriously considered for expansion of public transportation in major portions of the KCMR, and especially in medium and lower density suburban areas.
