Dial-A-Ride/Lift Consolidation Study (2010)
The dial-a-ride/dial-a-lift (DAR/DAL) study assesses the potential for consolidating the DAR/DAL services in the Greater Humboldt Bay Area, which includes the cities of Eureka and Arcata, the unincorporated community of McKinleyville, and the other surrounding unincorporated areas served by the Care-A-Van service. This study is the result of a recommendation from a Transportation Development Act performance audit of HCAOG.
The study discusses several demand-response transit models that may apply to the DAR/DAL consolidation effort. DAR/DAL is funded by three local jurisdictions: City of Eureka, City of Arcata, McKinleyville/Humboldt County, plus HCAOG (for expanded service to the surrounding unincorporated areas).
