ROLE OF PRIVATE ENTERPRISE IN TSM: CAN INTEREST BE GENERATED AND MAINTAINED?
It is in the inteest of the public sector to encourage private enterprise to participate in the planning, programming, and implementation of TSM strategies, as well as in the processes by which these functions are managed. As result of his experiences in working with a variety of employers and other groups in Middlesex County, New Jersey, the author lists what he considers necessary for the making of a TSM constituency: a locally based TSM coordinating group consisting of representatives from business, industry, various level of government, transit operators, and citizens; establishing an agenda of items to reinforce a public-private partnership in implementing a TSM strategy (e.g. have the private sector provide incentives to encourage participation); a central coordination staff, targeting improvements (i.e. implementing several mutually reinforcing projects in a given area); and insuring rapid implementation.
