Unmet Transit Needs
What is an Unmet Transit Need?
The Madera County Transportation Commission has determined that its definition of the term “unmet transit needs” includes all essential trip requests by transit-dependent persons for which there is no other convenient means of transportation, and the Commission has determined that its definition of the term “reasonable to meet” shall apply to all related public or specialized transportation services that:
1. are feasible;
2. have community acceptance;
3. serve a significant number of the population;
4. are economical; and
5. can demonstrate cost effectiveness
by having a ratio of fare revenues to operating cost at least equal to 10 percent, and the Commission has determined that its definition of the term “reasonable to meet” shall also apply to all service requests which do not abuse or obscure the intent of such transportation services once they are established.
