CARPOOLING; EXPERIENCES FROM TEST PROJECTS IN OSLO

ORGANISERT KAMERATKJOERING; MED ERFARINGER FRA PROEVEPROSJEKT I OSLO-OMRAADET

This report describes carpooling in general including three basic types of matching methods, and the experience with carpool matching programmes run with two larger firms in Norway. A survey of existing car occupancy gave 1,4 persons per car at firm a and 1,8 persons per car at firm b. The matching process started with questionnaires being sent to all employees containing questions regarding interest in joining a carpool and on what terms they wished to join. At a 7% and at b 9% of the employees wanted to join a carpool on certain conditions. Only 2/3 of these could form an acceptable carpool. The two programmes each resulted in a 1% reduction in the total number of private cars used for work trips. There were no use of incentives to influence decisions. /TRRL/
