I-95/NW 7TH AVENUE BUS/CAR POOL SYSTEMS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT REPORT I-7. EVALUATION OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF USERS AND NON-USERS OF THE NW 7TH AVENUE EXPRESS BUS/CAR POOL SYSTEM

This report presents the findings of three surveys performed during Phase I of the I-95/NW 7th Avenue Express Bus/Car Pool Systems Demonstration Project. The surveys were administered to obtain data on the socio-economic, travel, and attitudinal characteristics of two types of transit users, express bus passengers and Golden Glades car pool patrons; and similar data from a representative sample of non-users from among the target market population. The user surveys were self-administered questionnaires distributed to the respondents at the Golden Glades Terminal while the non-user survey consisted of telephone interviews conducted by a market research firm. An analysis of the data indicated that the users differed from the non-users with respect to the distribution of several socio-economic traits within each group. Users had a disproportionately larger percentage of females while the non-users had a greater concentration of males. This difference carried over to other socioeconomic traits as well.
