The benefits of interagency coordination of public and human service transportation havebeen recognized and promoted by federal, state and local governments. Potentialcoordination benefits can be realized by centralizing critical functions of transitoperations. One of the ways this can be realized is by brokering partransit services. Thispaper discusses barriers that agencies face when planning to implement paratransitbrokerages. The barriers were developed from a synthesis of the literature and interviewswith paratransit providers in Illinois. Strategies for implementing brokerages that attemptto overcome these barriers based on an analysis of paratransit operators in the state ofIllinois are also presented. These strategies include establishing an advisory board,developing an agreement among participants, specification of the type of brokerage thatwill be implemented and technological changes.
