Through the Academic Initiative, Jeevanjot Singh conducted research on time-of-day pricing strategies for the Westchester County Bee-Line System transit network. Her study’s purpose was to produce realistic demand and cost functions that could be used by Westchester County to develop better transit policies for elderly and disabled populations. Her report, “Variable Fares for Elderly and Handicapped Transit Riders: An Analysis of Westchester County,” explored alternatives with variable fare options for peak and off peak periods. Her analysis compared various fare levels, as well as a comparison of price elasticities at other transit agencies around the country. Ms. Singh’s research was supervised by her academic advisor, Dr. Kaan Ozbay, and by a professional advisor, Patricia Chemka, now Deputy Commissioner, Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation.
