What's the idea?
As a remedy to less car park capacity and to contribute to a cleaner environment, Banyule City Council has developed and implemented a carpooling system among the staff members.
What was the focus?
The benefits to employees and to the community
How to initiate a carpooling system like by investigating how it could work best for the organisation
- How can people encourage to participate in car sharing
- How to maintain the program
Survey conducted on:
The current modes of staff transport, particularly the proportion of staff currently driving alone
Followed up by a discussion about the attitude towards carpooling and whether staff would be happy to travel together.
Potential issue and solution
One of the critical barriers to implementing a carpooling system, is a sudden conflict in leaving time of the employees who shared the car. As a solution for this they compensate the employees by providing a taxi fare for their trip.
