LABOR, PARATRANSIT, AND SECTION 13C

There are many legal and institutional strategies that transit labor can use to protect itself from unwanted innovation; this paper examines the specific protection given by section 13c of the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964. The paper begins with a description of the mass transportation system to which section 13c applies and then describes the use of competitive brokerage for the selection of new mass transportation services. It next discusses the historical context of section 13c and the application of this section to the acquisition of private mass transit companies by using Urban Mass Transportation Administration funds. Finally, the paper describes various applications of section 13c that affect paratransit innovation, including competitive brokerage, and recommends measures for ameliorating any adverse effects such applications may cause. /Author/
