Modal Preference for ITS-Enhanced Ridesharing and Paratransit Services for Disabled and Elderly Travelers

The paper reviews a national study of more than 2,400 subjects in Davis and Sacramento, California areas from 1996 to 1997. The study's objective was to examine the suitability of transportation services and information systems to enhance the mobility of elderly and disabled travelers. The preliminary findings showed that as health and disability status decreased, driving, walking, and average number of daily trips also decreased. While facing a range of mobility constraints, disabled and elderly travelers are likely to continue to seek mobility improvements.
