NOTES: Demand response (also know as dial-a-ride or paratransit) is comprised of passenger cars, vans, or small buses operating in response to calls from passengers or their agents to the transit operator, who then dispatches a vehicle to pick up the passengers and transport them to their destinations. Other includes modes such as automated guideway, Alaska Railroad, cable car, ferryboat, inclined plane, monorail, trolleybus, and vanpool. Data may not add to total because of independent rounding.
