A Directory of Rural and Specialized Transit Operators. Volume 1: Eastern U.S. Systems.
Rucker, George; And Others
This 3-volume directory is the first comprehensive effort to identify Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) funded Section 18 and 16(b)(2) rural and specialized transportation agencies and describe characteristics of these systems: organizational structure, service characteristics, size, and areas served. Volume 1 contains listings for Region I (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont); Region II (New Jersey, New York); Region III (Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia); and Region IV (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee). Under regional and state headings, agencies providing transit systems are listed alphabetically according to funding source: Section 18, Section 16(b)(2), or other federal sources. Addresses and telephone numbers, names of counties served, numbers of vehicles and lifts in service, and number of trips made and clients served are provided for each agency. Data from individual agencies are summarized in state profiles, which are then combined into regional and national profiles. Volume 1 identifies a total of 1,547 organizations receiving direct or indirect UMTA funding. This includes 335 agencies funded under the Section 18 program and 1,212 agencies receiving assistance under Section 16(b)(2). (NEC)
