Transportation Needs of Disadvantaged Populations: Where, When, and How?
The transportation needs of the disadvantaged population (persons with disabilities, older adults, or 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. In the process, pathways for the whole population are envisioned.
