DUPLICATION BETWEEN DEMAND-RESPONSIVE SYSTEMS AND FIXED-ROUTE SYSTEMS

The purpose of this study was to determine the degree to which a specialized door-to-door transit service for the elderly duplicated existing fixed-route service in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The analysis measures the proportion of elderly who could use the existing fixed-route system for their trip making and therefore do not need the door-to-door system. The study proposes alternatives that can be implemented to increase service and to ensure service to those who need it. /Author/
