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.
