The current interest in van pooling has raised numerous institutional problems. This report addresses several of the more apparent state and Federal institutional issues, describes current progress in resolving the problems, and suggests alternatives for removing the inhibiting factors. The report will conclude by listing specific recommendations. The discussion of institutional issues will focus on three types of pooling. These include employer-sponsored pools, in which the company owns or leases the vehicle which transports their employees, i.e., TVA, 3M Company, and the Continental Oil Company programs; employee-owned and operated pools, in which an individual operates a van just as he would a shared-expense carpool; and third-party programs, in which a government, lease firm, or company supplies the vehicle and coordinates groups of commuters as a business activity or as a public service, such as, Commuter Computer or Pinetree Transportation of Los Angeles, Vango in Maryland, or the Knoxville Commuter Pool.
