Kelly Vasquez, Spectrumotion
The Irvine Spectrum Transportation Management Association (TMA) has a clear philosophy: to reduce the amount of trips to the Irvine Spectrum area. With a current enrollment of over 10,000 commuters, Spectrumotion is one of the larger TMAs that TripSpark partners with in order to provide rideshare management software solutions. They are unique in the way they operate in that their funding is 100% from property owners. Their service is then offered for free to employers. In turn, employers can offer alternative transportation choices, which serve to enhance their total benefit package by helping to reduce the time, stress, expense and impact of the daily commutes of their employees. The benefit of this funding model is that Spectrumotion is able to focus its efforts entirely on ridesharing and not grant getting.
