The Haddonfield, New Jersey Dial-A-Ride (DAR) System operated from February 1972 to December 1974. The overall objective of the project was to determine the public attitudes, economic and technical feasibility, and community impacts of the Demand-Responsive Transportation concept. The household survey discussed in this report was conducted in September 1974 in the dial-a-ride service areas of Haddonfield, Barrington, Lawnside, and Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The Haddonfield Dial-A-Ride had been in service for 20 months. This survey was administered to obtain data on the socioeconomic profile and travel characteristics of the users of Dial-A-Ride and the users of taxi, fixed-route bus and auto modes. Tabulations of the responses collected were made for each of four samples on a household, person and trip basis. Among conclusions reached was that the use of Dial-A-Ride for travel between home and work was higher than that shown by previous surveys.
