Transportation institutions are likely to have a significant influence on the quality of transit service, through integration of services across transit agencies. Past research has usually tackled this topic obliquely, or through studies focused on a single region or state. This presentation uses comparative case study analysis to examine four highly fragmented areas, two with strong cross-jurisdictional institutions, and two where such institutions are weak, using findings to illustrate benefits and drawbacks to different multi-jurisdictional governance strategies, focusing in particular on the problematic impacts of local ability to opt out of the transit system entirely. This presentation then examines the implications of these findings on new app-based, on-demand transit services used as public transit.
