PARA TRANSIT OR THE THIRD WAY: ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE THIRD WORLD. PRELIMINARY PROPOSAL AND PROGRAMME STATEMENT FOR A PROJECT INITIATIVE BEING UNDERTAKEN BY THE OECD DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

This report surveys different forms of paratransit used in developing countries, e.g. vehicle sharing, collective taxis, route-deviation minibuses. Details are given of a 3-phase research project undertaken to provide an improved understanding of these systems and to give guidelines as to ways in which they might be improved. Phase 1: "program design" describes the literature search and review, the draft questionnaire which will be used in case studies, case study technique, design of the matrix for the comparative assessment of alternative systems, selection of sites for detailed case studies. In phase 2: "pilot project and first report" the preparation of case studies is outlined together with that of an international workshop. Phase 3 explains how to set up a collaborative international research and advisory programme. /TRRL/
