The study resulted from questions that had been raised about the quantity of Bi-State Development Agency transit services provided to the transit-dependent and minority population of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. The Project had the objectives of evaluating existing service, determining whether it is adequately and equitably provided to the transit-dependent and minority population, and identifying any needed corrective steps that can be taken. The study found that services were generally adequate and equitable. Deficiencies with respect to adequacy were found in availability of financial assistance, frequency of service, trip speed, vehicle loadings, and on-time performance. Equity deficiencies were found in the areas of vehicle loading and bus cleanliness. The elements of the recommended program are addressed.
