TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) has conducted a project to develop tools and an accompanying manual to improve ridership estimates for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary paratransit services.
TCRP Project B-28 is nearing completion. A demand estimation tool developed in the project will be presented to the public for the first time at this workshop. Principal Investigator, David Koffman from Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, and team member, David Lewis of HLB Decision Economics, will explain how the demand estimation tool was developed, and what the results mean for practitioners, advocates, and those who are developing policies about the future of ADA paratransit. Members of the TCRP Panel that oversaw the project will be on-hand to comment and critique the project results and talk about what additional research remains to be done. Comments and ideas for further research will be sought from those in attendance.
