Independent Transportation Network (ITN): Alternative Transportation
Report Number: IDEA-09
This IDEA project evaluated the efficacy and operational feasibility of a demand responsive independent transportation network (ITN) concept for the elderly in a typical small community using nontraditional payment plans. The project was performed in two stages. Stage 1 established the need for an ITN system and for a workable design to perform pilot-scale trials for assessing the feasibility of the ITN system. In Stage 2, pilot-scale trial testing was performed to determine the efficacy of the system. Service characteristics and payment plan options that are best suited for a small community were evaluated. Plans for a field operational evaluation ITN deployment were developed.
