The purpose of this study is to evaluate eight of the 23 existing Section 18 projects in North Dakota. Each of the eight systems will be evaluated in terms of their effectiveness and efficiency. Two of the objectives of the evaluation are to identify areas where efficiency or effectiveness could be improved, and to suggest methods of implementing needed improvements. The provision of services to the transportation disadvantaged is a major goal of mass transit projects. Thus, a major focus of the evaluation will be on the effectiveness of services to the handicapped and elderly.
