Abstract:

Twenty eight papers and workshop reports are published which were presented at the conference which addressed problems in the implementation and application of promising techniques within those major functional areas commonly thought to be relevant to paratransit application. Workshops and their reports were structured around 6 major issues: the role of paratransit in an integrated urban transportation system; the effect of governmental capital and operating assistance on the development of paratransit; institutional changes needed to foster the development of paratransit; paratransit in small communities and nonurbanized areas; operation issues for paratransit: productivity, vehicles, dispatching and management; and the role of paratransit in serving the needs of special groups. Included in this publication are four state-of-the-art papers covering the spectrum of transportation options and services broadly categorized as paratransit, the development and organization of paratransit services and systems, and the empirical analyses of the operation of several innovative paratransit applications.
