Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO surveyed the special efforts being undertaken by local transit systems to accomodate the transportation needs of the elderly and handicapped after the rescission of a federal rule that required all federally assisted transit systems to make their systems accessible to the handicapped.

GAO found that, while several systems are continuing to make their conventional transit services accessible to the handicapped, the majority are providing some form of demand-responsive paratransit service using buses, vans, or taxis.
