    • Abstract:
      The technological advances in the field of microcomputer systems offer some real opportunities to assist in the improvement of small paratransit operations and management in practical and readily implementable terms. The retail outlet availability and low cost of microcomputer systems, combined with the low skill level requirements for their use, offer a great potential for short- and long-term solutions to the increasing productivity demands made on the management and operations personnel of these systems. However, recent experience in the adaptation of computer technology suggests that much depends on forethought and on sensitivity to the operational environment of paratransit systems for the successful insertion of this technology. This paper reports on a project which tries to provide the opportunity for some experimentation and analysis on the adaptation of microcomputer technology to the process of managing and operating paratransit services.
