Tools and Guides - for carpool schemes

The CHUMS approach has been successfully tested and proves that carpooling should be part of the mobility options offered to employees, whether in local authorities, universities or public and private companies. A successful introduction of the CHUMS measures depends on choosing the right site to implement, on using the right technology, on having employers support at all stages and on considered implementation at each step. All barriers, real or perceived, can be overcome by careful planning and by using the right messages for the right targets.

In the frame of CHUMS we have developed a series of tools and guides that will help you in developing your own carpooling scheme:

  • Common European approach to implementing the CHUMS Measures. It is a concise step by step guide of how to deliver: the Carpool week – How to plan and design, popular branding and promotion techniques and estimated costs; the Mobility Jackpot – Popular prizes, frequency, how to run a prize draw, promotion and the Personalised Travel Plans – training of interviewers, tips on reducing costs, manual vs automated, evaluation.
  • Implementation of CHUMS in 5 European cities has specific stories from each of the 5 CHUMS cities with insights on what worked well and not so well, success factors and recommendations, Ideas of cost effective promotion materials and more.
  • The Guide for introducing automated PTPs presents case studies and tips.
  • The Financial and Social Barriers to accepting CHUMS Measures gives you an estimate cost of your CHUMS measures as well as methods and tips to overcome social barriers to using carpooling.
These tools are available for download here!
