CAR-SHARING & CAR-POOLING IN GREAT BRITAIN: THE RECENT SITUATION & POTENTIAL

This report reviews the character of passenger travel by car in Great Britain using, in particular, results derived from the national travel survey 1975/76. Car passengers who travel in a car belonging to another family account for as many passenger kilometers as all stage-carriage bus services. Car-poolers, who take it in turns to drive their own car and give lifts to others in the group, are only about 3 percent of those who drive a car to work. Most passengers in non-household cars are regular passengers (car sharers) who do not have the option of driving themselves.
