The study demonstrates, both operationally and financially, the feasibility of expanding routes in suburban regions of Erie County, Pennsylvania, through coordinated school/regular route bus service. The initial phase of this report contains a review of school transportation laws and existing transportation services in the County including those provided by the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority (EMTA), the school districts and private carriers. This review indicates the feasibility of the school/regular route coordinated service concept. Two corridors in the County were chosen and three joint-use routes were defined which expand EMTA regular route service to about 20,000 residents in Erie County who at present have no transit service available. About 430 students from three School Districts would be served by the coordinated school/public transit routes. Finances of the project are discussed as well as fleet size and manpower quotas.
