The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of implementing Transportation Demand Management (TDM) initiatives with the business community by the South Florida Commuter Assistance Program (CAP). To determine this effectiveness, the south Florida CAP was compared with the two other CAPs operating in the state, by analyzing independent evaluations of the program, and by conducting eight individual company case studies.

Independent evaluations of the south Florida CAP for the years 1997 - 2000 were analyzed and found to have increasing trends in the number of companies adopting TDM initiatives. In addition, each case was selected from the numerous companies participating with the south Florida CAP. It was determined that companies with support from upper management adopted TDM initiatives more readily.

The findings demonstrated that the south Florida CAPs initiatives have been successful in working with the business community to adopt TDM initiatives. In its conclusions, the study offers further suggestions on what actions should be taken in the future to implement TDM initiatives.
