Wayfinding Devices Designed and Installed for the Visually Impaired Community

May-02

Focuses on the use of The Talking Sign System, a wayfinding device that can reduce the barriers that blind and visually impaired people encounter when they are out in a built environment dominated by people who can see. Discusses one specific ADA accessibility requirement: the securement of a wheelchair in public transportation vehicles. The Center for Urban Transportation Research surveyed 270 agencies about their securement policies, difficulties, and strategies to assess the scope and magnitude of securement issues currently facing transit agencies and paratransit providers in the United States. Suggests the following steps as necessary in developing written policies: select which service policies should have written guidelines; apply ADA regulations, system standards, and other factors; develop policy statements; get input and approval from policy boards, advisory committees, and operating staff; and present the policies in ways riders and other interested people can understand them best. Discusses how the transformation of fixed route bus and rail services to better accommodate disabled passengers and the creation, through the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or modification of paratransit services to supplement them have placed a strain on transit agencies from a number of perspectives. Provides transit agencies with information regarding how to effectively implement an outreach program designed to educate people about public transportation options. Examines the way the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) complied with the ADA paratransit service requirements without compromising transportation for their existing customers. Presents a simulation system to facilitate the evaluation of the potential effects that these technologies may bring to a paratransit system, and also discusses the general concepts, models and computational techniques applied in the simulation system, focusing on how various components are modeled and how they interact with each other in the overall simulation framework. Explores the context, method, and value of focus group research in assessing transit needs of the elderly, disabled, special needs and low income transit disadvantaged. The focus is on lessons from three Nebraska communities whose transit disadvantaged rely on community based paratransit services. Describes a modeling system called LITRES-2, which is designed to help transportation planners and operators investigate the performance of public transport systems, especially for demandresponsive transport modes and traveler information technologies.

Transit Tips for Transporting the Disabled

Date

Feb-02

Description

Five areas of concern are covered: boundary issues, how to be helpful without being patronizing; wheelchairs, how to handle the different types of wheelchairs; differentiating among different disabilities; not being afraid to just ask the passenger; and handling all equipment with caution to avoid being hurt. Presents some recent mathematical modeling approaches to the deviation bus route operations which accept user demands and makes the bus deviate from its regular route to serve the offfixed-route request and then return on the regular route. Focuses on explaining the ways in which the Internet can be a crucial part of any paratransit operation. Paratransit E-business can provide information for systems on how this new technology works, and advise on how it can work for paratransit users. Describes open.P, an open database concept for public transit that combines the different services and forms the basis of an integrative concept. Provides an overview of the MPS concept, which was designed to create local working relationships between transit systems and disability/human service organizations with the aim of making ADA-specific services available locally. Describes a passenger education program to encourage responsible use of paratransit by individuals with disabilities. State-of-the-art econometric techniques are used to evaluate the program's success. Reports on a study that examined issues that must be considered in implementing new systems that use new technologies in public transit. Focuses on demographic aspects of use, the relationship between fixed-route transit and paratransit, size of the paratransit market and providers, service delivery, scheduling and dispatching, and labor, among others. The goal of the ITN is to meet the mobility needs of America's aging population by developing an economically sustainable, nonprofit transportation service that is suitable for replication in other communities across the country. Major findings are that physical barriers are being overcome, but initial resistance to even considering public transit remains. Assesses the extent to which transit agencies, particularly in Florida, measure and monitor compliance with service capacity constraint requirements associated with the complementary paratransit provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Describes the complexities involved in creating an accurate eligibility determination process that complies with ADA requirements and is regionally and politically feasible to implement, and documents the range of outcomes produced by the different eligibility certification models and offers information about their overall effectiveness. Offers information from selected transit agencies about the operational practices used to provide ADA paratransit services and identifies factors perceived by transit personnel to have influenced the selection of service delivery methodology. Describes different technologies which can enhance demand response transit systems. It covers automated scheduling and dispatching, mobile data terminals, electronic identification cards, automatic vehicle location, and geographic information systems. Describes consumer-oriented Personalized Demand Responsive Transit (PDRT) service, and presents the results of six focus groups and a survey designed to investigate service attributes that would attract travelers to PDRT.

Guide to Successful Telecommuting Guide to Effective Telemanaging

Sep-97 Sep-97

Intended to be a guide for the purpose of assisting telecommuters. Guidebook for mangers of telecommuters to help the develop the knowledge and skills to successfully implement a telecommuting program within their workgroup. Overall objective was to gather information, conduct research, and prepare materials for Middle Tennessee employers an enhanced understanding of telecommuting as it relates to worker performance and travel behavior. Identifies more than 200 transportation organizations representing stakeholders in the US transportation system and describes the roles those organizations play in policy development and implementation. Describes some successful examples of coordination of public transit and human services, and provides lessons learned for other locales to improve their coordination efforts. In January 1998, the Grand Rapids Area Transit Authority (GRATA) board adopted a concept and strategy for creating an Office of Mobility Management. The concept was to become a leading provider of coordinated transit services within the community and extend those coordination skills to a full family of mobility services. Provides options for elected officials and policy makers to consider when addressing sprawl in their communities. Participants attending sessions on PC1101 held at the past two TAPA meetings (i.e., the 2000 Annual TAPA Conference and the 2001 Winter TAPA Retreat) comments addressing operational issues to be considered in relation to PC1101.

2002 2002 Dec-95 WSDOT has proposed an interim set of performance measures that have been approved by the Transportation Commission Discusses the increase of transit use between 1995 and 2000, especially in New York and the reasons why. Article contends that in decision making for metropolitan rail transit expansion, the shared characteristics of metropolitan areas that successfully operate light rail, commuter rail, and heavy rail transit systems suggests some overlooked criteria for evaluating the efficacy of proposed new rail transit projects. The results of t-tests suggest counterintuitive management actions to improve service and productivity. Internet-based methods of data collection, validation, and evaluation demonstrate promise for real-time transit management and agency monitoring. Examines alternative system architectures and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) architectures designed to improve the efficiency of personalized public transit and demand responsive systems such as paratransit. Reviewed are available and emerging ITS technologies that have been deployed or are being considered for this industry. Documents the results of a project exploring the use of advanced technologies to improve specialized transportation service delivery. Highlights a need for continuous strong propaganda on the civic, economic, spatial and environmental advantages (per passenger-mile) of public transport together with propaganda on improved intermodal interfaces as an important means of persuading people to use public rather than private transport. Evaluates Personalized Public Transit (PPT) that serve pick-up passengers on a demand or asneeded basis, and briefly describes technologies used in PPT, including Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL). Highlights several transportation ideas of the past--both those that worked and those that did not pan out. Dial-a-ride transit, personal rapid transit, congestion pricing, and ride-sharing are all ideas of the 1970s that did not develop as expected.

Modeling Senior Travelers' Acceptance of New Transit Systems

Date

1999

Description

Examines the findings of an investigation of senior travelers' willingness to use several advanced transit systems. Looks at the reasons why so much has not kept pace with this growth, specifically the use of this equipment, technology and know-how by the majority of the passengers who need it and are able to use it. Presents a systematic review of transportation modes and their characteristics and discusses the consequences of excessive automobile dependence and shows that the most livable cities worldwide have intermodal systems that balance highway and public transit modes while providing for pedestrians, bicyclists, and paratransit. Identified 11 transportation practices that help reduce costs such as higher unemployment, reduced tax revenue, greater welfare and medical costs, and limited social potential and provide economic benefits to both the riders and the larger community.
