FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS
A brief background to the study is provided on the aims and development of flexible working hours. Questionnaires were distributed to all employees of a Wellington Insurance Company both before and after the company adopted an experiment with flexible working hours. The questionnaires sought to determine the effect of the experiment on travel patterns to and from work. Over half of the replies indicated a change in the pattern of travel some coming earlier and some later. Flexible working hours were also found to reduce the heavy loads on buses and to increase the number of car passengers. Car drivers and train passengers remained at similar levels.
