Background on the study: A Paratransit Market Study was initiated in Lake County to evaluate transportation options for seniors, people with disabilities, and the general public. A variety of services are currently available, such as Pace Dial-a-Ride or township programs, to assist these populations in their travels to and from medical appointments, places of employment and other daily activities. Unlike a traditional scheduled bus service that runs on a published route and serves fixed bus stops, paratransit is a shared and flexible on-demand service that responds to rider requests for travel within a defined service area. Paratransit services are geared toward individuals with mobility limitations that prevent them from accessing scheduled bus service, and/or live outside of an area served by scheduled bus service.
