JOINT HEW-UMTA EVALUATION OF ELDERLY AND HANDICAPPED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES IN REGION IV. VOLUME I. PLANNING AND COORDINATION MANUAL

The major goals of the project were twofold: (1) to evaluate the degree of coordination that presently exists among human service transportation providers, both public and private, with special attention focusing on the needs of older citizens and handicapped individuals; (2) to develop a generic planning, implementation, and evaluation document based on an analysis of findings in six selected sites in the Southeast that would be transferable to any community seeking to more efficiently serve the mobility needs of elderly and handicapped persons through coordinated efforts. Volume 1 is a 'how to' manual intended for use by those responsible for planning and/or operating specialized transportation systems. Paratransit, elderly, and handicapped transportation; social services transportation; and rural transportation are the categories addressed. The manual explains how to start, plan, operate, and manage a specialized transportation system and how to coordinate the services of one agency with those of others.
