Employer attitudes to employer transport plans: a comparison of UK and Dutch experience
AbstractEmployer transport plans (ETPs) are implemented by employers to encourage their employees to choose environmentally friendly modes of transport to work. They have been a part of Netherlands' transport policy since 1989 and now form an important plank of government transport thinking in the UK as well. This paper uses data from questionnaire surveys, focus groups, interviews and site visits to assess employers' attitudes to ETPs and to the role which government is asking them to play in transport policy. It concludes that employers in both countries are somewhat sceptical and that government resources should be focused on assisting those employers with site-specific transport problems to implement ETPs.
