Authors:
Austin, John K.

Year: 1979
VTRC No.: 80-R9
Abstract: This report describes methods and techniques that could be used to increase the use of car pools in Virginia. Two approaches are described. The first employs those methods that serve as an incentive for persons to form car pools, such as preferential use of street and highway facilities, parking privileges, etc. The second involves methods that assist people in the formation of car pools, such as market segmentation, community car pool coordinators, and computer matching. The report stresses the importance of management and government's commitment to the establishment of car pool programs.
