Capital Region Transportation Needs Assessment of Seniors and Persons with Disability
The report provides an assessment of the effects of predisposing, enabling, and need factors on different types of transportation needs (e.g., medical, essential, social, etc.) acrossdifferent segments of the population (seniors and PWD), and across different settings (urban and rural). The research also is unique in that it provides information not only on the factors affecting the transportation mobility of seniors and PWD in urban and rural settings, but also assesses, with the same sample, the attributes needed to make ATS and ST services more user-friendly. The research also provides information on the importance of the availability of ATS and ST services, intermunicipal transit (IMT) services, and regional medical transit (RMT) services in communities in the Capital Region, as well as the importance of municipal funding for these services.
