TRANSPORTATION SERVICES FOR THE ELDERLY AND HANDICAPPED, BROWNSVILLE

The information presented herein establishes a data base for planning public mass transportation facilities and services that can effectively be utilized by the City's elderly and handicapped (EH) citizens. It details the findings of a survey questionnaire which was designed to determine the current level of transportation services for the EH in the City of Brownsville. From this detailed evaluation an analysis is made to quantify those EH persons who, because of their impaired mobility, do not have access to transportation services and facilities. The final section of this report discusses operations alternatives to provide demand-responsive service for semi- and non-ambulatroy persons. /Author/
