FLEXTIME TRAVEL CHOICE: A LITERATURE REVIEW AND FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYSIS
The study outlined in this paper will examine several aspects of time related travel demand. The research has been motivated by a desire to better understand the temporal aspects of transportation peaking, and through this understanding, to offer some remedial strategies to lessen peakings' adverse impacts. The study has been divided into two principal research areas--temporal management and temporal response. Temporal management implies the use of variable work hours programs such as flextime, staggered work hours, and the four-day work week for the purpose of congestion relief. Temporal response refers to the ways that travelers may respond to changes in the transportation system. The remainder of the paper documents the progress of the research in the area of temporal management and variable work hours. It reviews previous city-wide studies (New York City, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, and others) and employer programs. It concludes with a description of the direction of future research.
