EVALUATION OF THE FEDERAL ENERGY ADMINISTRATION (FEA) VANPOOL MARKETING AND IMPLEMENTATION DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM. FINAL REPORT

This report evaluates the FEA/Grey Van Pool Demonstration Program. The FEA initiated the demonstration program to test the marketability of the van pool concept to employers in five market areas--San Francisco Bay region, Chicago, Long Island, New Orleans-Baton Rouge, and Connecticut. Comparisons were made with other major van pool programs in the United States. The objectives of reviewing other van pool programs were to provide historical perspective and to substantiate the findings of the FEA demonstration program. This approach focused on four topic areas: strategies for eliciting employer sponsorship of vanpooling; employer and employee characteristics amenable to instituting vanpool programs; influence of the regional environs; and savings to employers, employees, the environment, and the community. The methodology, an iterative development process, will provide a useful tool with which government agencies can assess the viability of proposed van pool programs in formulating policy decisions.
