PORTLAND METROPOLITAN AREA CARPOOL PROJECT
The Interim Report of the Portland Metropolitan Area Carpool Project describes the development and success of carpool promotional efforts undertaken in Portland during 1974. Elements that contributed to the success of the program include: extensive marketing activities, carpool matching services, employer support, and identification of park-and-ride facilities. Based on followup surveys the report estimates that more than 22,000 persons, or nearly 7 percent of area employees, were induced to carpool as a direct result of project activities. The report also describes the institutional and financial arrangements for areawide carpool promotion in Portland.
