TCRP Report 144 provides a comprehensive analysis of issues and effective solutions for identifying and sharing the cost of providing transportation services for access to community-based human services programs. It examines current practices and offers strategies for collecting necessary data, addressing administrative and policy-related issues, and establishing cost allocation procedures. Building on this inclusive process, the report develops a Cost Sharing Model that facilitates local coordination and service delivery. The report is presented in two volumes and a CD-ROM. This volume, Volume 2, summarizes all of the study components that contributed to formation of the Toolkit, which is found in Volume 1. It includes an extended evaluation of current experience and describes the regulatory environment that frames transportation service delivery requirements.
