THE TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT PLAN OF THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT, PUBLIC WORKS & WATER MANAGEMENT

The development of the Dutch plan (SVV 1) for employees of the public service departments, the strategies employed, their implementation and experience with results is described. The aim was to halve the expected growth in car use by the year 2010. The plan was designed to stir up interest, arousing curiosity, encouraging people to experiment before establishment and formalisation by means of strategies and rewards. Details are given of each stage of the plan with examples of its use. The findings are given of an assessment, by in-depth interviews and group discussions, of the Transport Plan's main impact and side effects. The provisions of free public transport season tickets for commuting distances of up to 25 km contributed to a 30 per cent reduction in the number of lone drivers. Costs and benefits of the Plan are analysed. For the covering abstract see IRRD 877018.
