This study focused on determining whether advanced transportation services and information systems could enhance the mobility of disabled and elderly travelers in their use of transit, paratransit, or advanced paratransit services. The advanced proposed systems included regular paratransit and two advanced paratransit systems (real-time paratransit and real-time ridesharing) and five transportation information systems: computer, television, operator-assisted telephone, automated telephone, and personal information systems.
