LEGAL AND INSTITUTIONAL CONSIDERATIONS IN PARATRANSIT INNOVATIONS

Transportation has a rigid background of laws, regulations, and business practices developed during the late 1800s that strongly influences the transportation options available today. This paper examines some of the assumptions on which these policies and practices are based. Several alternative approaches and ways in which they could be implemented are suggested. In addition, specific laws and practices that may need to be reevaluated are identified. /Author/
