USING THE DIAL-A-RIDE SYSTEM TO SERVE THE AUTOLESS

An assessment of the nature of transportation problems of the poor, elderly, and handicapped comprises the first section of this paper. It is shown that demand-responsive transportation systems such as Dial-A-Ride are demonstrably superior to conventional transit in providing for the transportation needs of the transportation disadvantaged. The impact of various demonstration projects of demand-responsive transportation are reviewed. The emphasis is on the effect these projects had on serving the poor, elderly and handicapped. /GMRL/
