This is the first application of the ABC/M methodology to paratransit (and transit) and possibly to social services.
Jon Burkhardt’s review and comments enabled me to substantially improve the draft of this chapter. Applying the ABC/M concepts, as explained by Gary Cokins, to the excellent base of work by Jon and others, enabled me to explain cost control strategies employed over the years at FASTRAN. With practical incentives, agencies sponsoring paratransit rides will be motivated to change their requirements – the cost drivers – to enable provision of more rides within available financial resources.
