Information Technology Applications in Community Transport: Evaluating the Social Aspects of Computerization in Community Transport Schemes

This paper describes how the information in community transport (IT in CT) is part of a major government sponsored research program in information technology applications in transport. The IT in CT project is investigating mini- and micro-computer applications in a selection of dial-a-rides and a community transport/brokerage scheme; in particular the benefits and problems arising from computerization and the impact of information technology on scheme management and performance. The dial-a-ride schemes include the study only service elderly and handicapped people while the community transport scheme provides minibuses and lift-equipped small passenger vehicles to voluntary community agencies serving a much wider clientele of the transport disadvantaged.
