AN ANALYSIS OF EXISTING REVERSE COMMUTE PROGRAMS IN THE UNITED STATES

Residential migration, coupled with shifts of employment to suburban locations, has modified the nature of urban travel patterns. Today, lateral commuting (commuting from one suburb to another) and reverse commuting (living in the central city and commuting to the suburbs) has replaced the traditional suburb-to-city commute. With the continued change in travel patterns many communities and organizations are in the process of compiling information on existing commute programs. The purpose of this study was to document existing information on reverse commuting. The programs studied were derived from a list of programs compiled by the Urban Mass Transit Administration's Entrepreneurial Services Challenge Grant Program (ESP). Implementation, organization, operation, ridership, funding and financing were the areas studied.
