CARPOOL INCENTIVES: EVALUATION OF OPERATIONAL EXPERIENCE

The report reviews both the published and unpublished literature with respect to various incentives that could increase carpooling and to determine, where possible, the effects of these incentives on carpooling. The coverage included theoretical and analytical work, as well as empirical observations of programs in operation both in this country and abroad. The primary focus is on the identification of actual examples of possible carpooling incentives, their description and implementation characteristics, applicability, institutional/legal barriers, public acceptability, and their effects on travel behavior and energy use. The relevant literature, applications, and existing data sources were canvassed and used to evaluate both the technical potential and the feasibility of implementation of the various policies selected for study.
