This paper describes an automated paratransit system for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) type paratransit operation implemented in Santa Clara County. It automated paratransit reservation, scheduling, and routing functions. The key components in this system are a digital geographic database and an automated trip scheduling system. Empirical evidence after one year of operation indicates numerous benefits of this automation.
