Title Transportation Needs of Disadvantaged Populations: Where, When, and How.
Publication Date Feb 2013
Media Count 91p
Personal Author F. Zhao T. Gustafson
Abstract Transportation needs of disadvantaged populations (persons with disabilities, older adults, and the poor) are explored, and a methodology to address transit markets is examined to determine where, when, and how to provide for basic mobility needs assuming pedestrian and transit-accessible community development. Interrelated and innovative strategies are suggested that weave together suggestions for both the disadvantaged and those who would support a growing economy. Consequently, pathways for the whole population are envisioned.
