The innovative use of the private car - attitudinal survey

This report discusses an attitudinal survey of the "blue sticker scheme". This scheme is proposed as a means of reducing the peak period demand for bus transport, by authorising certain private motor vehicles and drivers to pick up fare paying passengers along the present bus routes and taking them in and out of the city. Participating vehicles would be identified by a blue sticker on the windscreen, and would only be allowed to pick up passengers during the morning and evening peak periods. The survey found that while undoubtedly there are people who would participate in the scheme both as drivers and passengers, unless there are significant changes in the price structure and service offered by the public transport system, it is unlikely that there will be sufficient participants to make the scheme a viable alternative to peak period CBD commuting.
