THE RTA TELEWORKING PILOT PROJECT

One of the more promising forms of travel demand management is known as 'teleworking'. Teleworking involves working for part of the time away fromthe usual work base. Teleworking could have a significant effect on travel behaviour not only for individuals involved in teleworking but also fortheir families. The effect on travel behaviour could include variations in the amount of travel, the modes used and the time of travel. To obtainexperience with teleworking, the Roads and Traffic Authority has established a pilot teleworking project. The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of teleworking on transport utilisation, work productivity and worker satisfaction. The pilot project involves RTA employees who have volunteered to participate in a six months trial. This paper describes the scope of the project, the processes used for selecting participants and the characteristics of the project participants. The paper also describes thetechniques used for evaluating the impact of teleworking on transport utilisation, work productivity and worker satisfaction. Issues addressed as part of the preparation for the pilot project are also discussed. (a) Forthe covering abstract of this conference see IRRD abstract no. 861222.
