EXISTING SERVICES IMPACT STUDY. VOLUME I: MAIN REPORT. APPENDIX C: WORKSHOP 1. APPENDIX D: WORKSHOP 2

The objective of the study was to determine the adequacy and equitability of transit service operated by the Bi-State Development Agency, particularly with respect to the transit-dependent and minority population of the service area. The report describes the study process, findings, conclusions and recommendations. The project included development of definitions for terms relevant to the study (transit-dependent persons and areas, minority persons and areas, transportation needs), identification of criteria for examining adequacy and equity, development of analysis methods, data gathering (including an on-board survey of bus riders), analysis of service adequacy and equity, analysis of service standards, and development of a program to remedy deficiencies or otherwise strengthen adequacy and equity. Two public meetings were held to advise the public of processes and results, obtain suggestions, and respond to questions. Interim and final work steps were reviewed by the Bi-State Development Agency and the Urban Mass Transportation Agency's Regional, Transportation Planning and Civil Rights Offices.
