KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE COMMUTER POOL-MATCHING MARKETS TO MODES WITH PARATRANSIT BROKERING
The purpose of this paratransit agency case study was to develop basic instructional materials to support university classroom and professional short course training in local paratransit planning. Knoxville Commuter Pool was a significant national experiment in community-wide transportation brokerage, particularly in its broad scale implementation of an owner/operator van pool program (47 van pools at the end of 1978), its aggressive promotion of all forms of ridesharing among employers and employees in the area, and in the resolution of barriers (notably state regulations and insurance) to ridesharing brokerage. Knoxville Computer Pool engaged in limited amounts of human service agency transportation brokerage through 1977. Comparisons are made with the local Tennessee Valley Authority ridesharing programs, which is a successful model of an employer-based commuter work trip brokerage.
