CARPOOL INCENTIVES: ANALYSIS OF TRANSPORTATION AND ENERGY IMPACTS
The report quantitatively analyzes the impacts of carpooling strategies on travel behavior and energy consumption. It details the effects of 18 candidate strategies on the utilization of different transport modes for work trips and the resultant effects on non-work travel patterns, household auto ownership, and total fuel consumption. Five specific objectives governed the work performed: (1) To collect information on carpooling behavior and analyze existing experience with strategies that may encourage ride-sharing; (2) to predict, by using behavioral travel-demand models, the changes in travel patterns that might result from implementation of such strategies; (3) to translate increased carpooling (or other changes in travel patterns) into decreased fuel consumption; (4) to evaluate the feasibility of implementing particular strategies; (5) to recommend strategies for increasing carpooling and reducing fuel consumption that will be both feasible and effective.
