Determination of prerequisites and basic elements for a car-pooling systems management facility in two typical applications:
- CPMS in a high density metropolitan area (commuting and shopping trips); - Occasional CPMS in rural areas with poor or no public transport.
The technical approach of this project is divided into three phases:
- A state of the art review of existing systems, identification of the shortcomings of present procedures, determination of the acceptability of such systems and analysis of the demand by different groups.
- Development of a publicly acceptable CPMS taking into account organization, administration and the exchange of data between pool members.
- Limited area field trials to determine the infrastructure necessary to the success of a CPMS.
