Abstract: We propose and investigate the concept of commuting service platforms (CSP)that leverage emerging mobility services to provide commuting services andconnect directly commuters (employees) and their worksites (employers). Byapplying the two-sided market analysis framework, we show under what conditionsa CSP may present the two-sidedness. Both the monopoly and duopoly CSPs arethen analyzed. We showhowthe price allocation, i.e., the prices charged tocommuters and worksites, can impact the participation and profit of the CSPs.We also add demand constraints to the duopoly model so that the participationrates ofworksites and employees are (almost) the same. With demand constraints,the competition between the two CSPs becomes less intense in general.Discussions are presented on how the results and findings in this paper mayhelp build CSP in practice and how to develop new, CSP-based travel demandmanagement strategies.
