Victorian transport study: car pooling

This report briefly covers the present position concerning the concept of car pooling as a measure aimed at the more efficient use of road space and at the conservation of liquid fuel in Victoria. A summary of submissions made to the study is included, together with comments on the potential advantages and disadvantages of the concept. Van pooling, and the private ownership and operation of vehicles with more seating capacity than the average motor car (for example, minibuses) are variations of car pooling, and are considered. Conclusions reached by the study are: that the potential benefits of car pooling are significant enough to warrant its encouragement; and the encouragement of car pooling is unlikely to have any adverse effect on the patronage of public transport. Some initiatives are proposed, and it is recommended that they be adopted (a). The Victorian transport study was chaired by lonie, wm.
