Workbook for Estimating Demand for Rural Passenger Transportation
Workbook for Estimating Demand for Rural Passenger Transportation
Report Number: R-003
This report will be of interest to agencies engaged in planning, operating, or funding passenger transportation services in rural areas. The objectives were to evaluate current methods used to forecast rural passenger transportation demand and to develop improved methods. The materials presented in this Workbook describe the types of information required to develop estimates of passenger transportation demand and step-by-step instructions, with examples and computation forms, for developing the demand estimates. For the most part, the data--related to social service program enrollment, demographic characteristics of the service area, and the quantity of service available--should be relatively easy to obtain. U.S. Census reports, county agencies, and transportation providers will be the best sources. For data that may not be readily available, alternative estimation methods are provided.
