Analysis of Effects on Workplace Mobility Management Targeting Commuter Transport

In this study, we conducted an experiment of a communicative measure, that is a travel feedback program, as a workplace mobility management measure. This measure tried to change employees’ commuting behavior from car use to the other travel modes such as public transport and bicycle. We performed a panel survey before and after the policy intervention and analyzed the effect of the intervention. We found that frequency of commuting by car reduced after the travel feedback program. The results also suggest that commuters change travel mode more easily from car to bicycle or motorbike than from car to railway. The effectiveness of the travel feedback program differed among companies, implying that company location was a determinant of the effect of the travel feedback program, and that changing travel mode was likely a function of the relative attractiveness of the alternative modes, particularly for railway, and commute length, in the case of bicycle and motorbike.
