This paper identifies the labor requirements applicable when transportation organizations want to increase competition through subcontracting or service contracting and suggests methods for meeting those labor requirements. The paper defines subcontracting and service contracting, identifies the major sources of labor requirements and the organizational types that are affected by each source, discusses the labor requirements in detail, and suggests ways of effectively dealing with the requirements. Although the paper specifically addresses those labor requirements that must be met in order to increase competition through subcontracting and service contracting, the discussion is also relevant to other organizational modifications that change the number or identification of transit service providers.
