A data base for demand-responsive transit operations has been designed to provide for systematic reporting and to be a standard of comparison between transit operations. The data base design is presented in the form of data sheets that may be used directly for recording information about transit operations. Subjects included in the data base include urban characteristics, ridership, costs, and services. Steps necessary for the complete development of a data base include design test, analytical validity, design revision, and development of reporting procedures and maintenance. The result will be a source of information for communities to plan new systems, to restructure existing systems, and to develop new system guidelines. This manual data base system is structured so that it may be automated at a future time.
