    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires providers to pro-vide paratransit services, complementary to their fixed routes, for those who are eligible. Since the ADA was passed, demand for such services has increased steadily. Although paratransit services are designed to maximize loads by accommodating customers according to a share-. First, staff used the sketch planning model built for the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP), as described in the article, “Improving ADA Complementary Paratransit Demand Estimation”.2The ridership estimations from the sketch planning model appeared higher than anticipated when compared to local historic paratransit ridership when adjusted for service area population.

A recent report (Koffman et al. ) on ADA complementary paratransit demand estimation predicts demand for service by ADA-eligible individuals, for trips within ¾ mile of fixed-route service, based on reservations taken from 1 to 14 days in advance.

Demand is predicted for service that is not capacity-constrained by sig. complementary paratransit service provided to ADA paratransit eligible persons. Because of the basic differences between the way that fixed route and paratransit services are provided, it is perhaps the most difficult criterion to understand and “equate”.

TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report Improving ADA Paratransit Demand Estimation: Regional Modeling presents a sketch planning model and regional models designed to help metropolitan planning organizations and transit operators better estimate the probable future demand for Americans with Disability Act (ADA) complementary paratransit service, as well as predict travel by ADA paratransit-eligible.

This report provides a sketch planning model and regional models to (1) improve the ability of metropolitan planning organizations and transit operators to estimate the probable future demand for Americans with Disabilities Act of (ADA) complementary paratransit service; and (2) predict travel by ADA paratransit-eligible individuals on all modes, not just ADA paratransit.

in ADA paratransit demand and costs. According to GAO’s survey, about 59 percent of transit agencies are coordinating with health and human services providers to improve ADA paratransit services or address the costs of providing such services. About 44 percent of transit agencies are coordinating with other local transportation providers.

A continuation to this project was approved and funded in October of by the TOPS Committee. This second phase of the project, TCRP BA, Improving ADA Complementary Paratransit Demand Estimation--Phase II: Regional Travel Demand Forecasting is nearing completion.

A customer may be eligible to use the ADA complementary paratransit for some trips, but find it necessary to use other demand-responsive services for other trips. For example, while the ADA complementary paratransit may only operate within 3/4 mile of the fixed route service, another service may be available throughout the county.

The Final Report provides an overview of the findings and recommendations of the Paratransit Operational Analysis (POA). Several improvements have been made to the ADA paratransit service since the beginning of the report, but there are several other areas that could use additional attention, including conditional eligibility, same-day service, and the ADA paratransit service area.ada complementary paratransit plan ma 2 table of contents page section demographic information 5 section description of existing services 5 section ison of complementary ada paratransit service to ada guidelines 8 section eligibility process 10 section participation process 12 appendix a: application for access service.Improving ADA Complementary Paratransit Demand Estimation: Completed: TCRP BA: Improving ADA Complementary Paratransit Demand Estimation--Phase II: Regional Travel Demand Forecasting: Completed: TCRP B Transit Market Research: Leveraging ITS and Transit ITS Data: Final: TCRP B
