The transportation problems of the elderly and handicapped have been a concern of officials and planners for some time. Survey after survey1 has shown transportation to be the number one problem for elderly and handicapped persons who suffer from extreme mobility barriers due to the automobile dominated transportation systems. Transit and taxicab system operators can attest to the fact that a significant number of elderly 2nd handicapped persons now use these public transportation systems, yet social service agencies attempting to provide needed services to their clients have found it necessary to augment existing public transportation because their clients use these systems.
