TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS OF THE TRANSPORTATION HANDICAPPED. VOLUME 3. ALTERNATIVE PLANNING METHODOLOGIES

This report proposes a general structure for the planning process for dealing with the problems of the transportation handicapped (TH). Flexibility of procedures and the avoidance of unnecessary standardization are emphasized. Planning for the needs of the TH may be incorporated into conventional transit planning or emerge as an independent process. Effective participation by the transportation handicapped and those who serve them (transit and taxi operators, union representatives, local health and social service agencies) is discussed in detail. Use of census data, the National Health Survey, and general population surveys to assess the transportation needs is presented. Procedures for the assessment of current resources and existing constraints are reviewed. Time phasing, plan revision, and system monitoring are also discussed.
