APPENDIX A--TABLE 19-A--82-PROGRAM SAMPLE Introduced in the "Analytical Considerations" subsection of the "Overview and Summary," the 82-program sample is drawn upon extensively in this chapter. The introduction to the "Response by Type of TDM Strategy" section further expands upon the use of the 82-program sample in the chapter. This appendix, specifically Table 19-A, provides details on each employer program included. The first column identifies the employer and site for each of the 82 programs. The sec- ond column identifies the source of the information, according to the following code: 1. Comsis Corporation. "Task 2 Working Paper: An Examination of Cost/Benefit and Other Decision Factors Used in Design of Employer-Based TDM Programs." TCRP Project B-4. Unpublished research findings and associated data files, Transportation Research Board, Washington, DC (1994). 2. Comsis Corporation and Institute of Transportation Engineers, "Implementing Effective Travel Demand Management Measures: Inventory of Measures and Synthesis of Experience." Prepared for Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration, Washington, DC (1993). 3. Rutherford, G. S., Badgett, S. I., Ishimaru, J. M., and MacLachlan, S. "Transportation Demand Management: Case Studies of Medium Sized Employers." Transportation Research Record 1459 (1994). 4. Comsis Corporation, E. N. Schreffler Transportation Consultant, K.T. Analytics, Applied Management and Planning Group, Crain & Associates, David A. Puzo & Associates, and Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, Inc., "MTA TDM Demonstration Program Third- Party Evaluation." Final Report. Prepared for Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transpor- tation Authority (1996). The "Type," "Location," and "Setting" columns should be largely self-explanatory, with "CBD" standing for Central Business District and "Sub CBD" standing for suburban CBD. It may be inferred that "Campus" and "Office Park" settings are essentially suburban. The "Near Transit" column gives the transit availability, either "High," "Medium," or "Low." "Transit availability" is a simplified transit accessibility measure where higher transit availability infers service by more scheduled buses/trains on more transit routes. Employers with no nearby transit stop are assigned to the "Low" transit availability ranking. The next five columns describe each employer's TDM program as of the early 1990s, when this data was collected. Program ele- ments are listed according to the four-type TDM categorization used in this chapter, except that parking conditions are identified separately in their own column. The first two "Vehicle Trip Rate" columns give the project average number of commute round trips per employee for the employer in question ("Project") along with a corresponding baseline aver- age rate against which to gauge the given program's effectiveness ("Control"). For more on the derivation of these baseline rates, see especially Footnote 3 in the "Analytical Considerations" dis- cussion of the "Overview and Summary." The final "Vehicle Trip Rate" column provides a calculation of the difference between the project vehicle trip rate and the control rate, expressed as a percentage of the control rate ("Difference"). Here the negative values represent an employer program project rate less than the control rate. In contrast, in the tables and text of the main body of this chapter, it is a positive Vehicle Trip Reduction (VTR) rate that implies program success at trip reduction relative to the norm. 19-164
