STATE-OF-THE-ART DEMAND-RESPONSIVE SYSTEMS FOR THE TRANSPORTATION HANDICAPPED

This paper describes some relevant data gathered from a recent survey of six state-of-the-art demand-responsive systems for the transportation handicapped. Data described include trip rates, registration rates, productivities, user characteristics, and costs. Based on the data, conclusions are drawn which might be of help to planners designing similar types of systems. Conclusions are reached about balancing supply and demand, about how to increase productivities and about how to reduce costs. /Author/
