Measure 1 Reduce the necessity of home-work trips
The most effective way to reduce the use of the car in home-work trips (and business trips), is to bring the work place closer to home. Teleworking can be a strategy to the reduce the length and/or the frequency of home to work trips.

Measure 2 Reducing the necessity of non-work trips in combination with work trips       
A lot of people use their car to come to work because they combine the home-work trip with other trips: bringing children to school, shopping (at noon or after work). By providing some services at or near the company site, this car use can be reduced.

Measure 3 Provide convenient collective transport      
Collective transport, such as public transport or company buses, can be an attractive alternative to car users. However, for it to be an attractive alternative, services need to be convenient, both in terms of frequencies, speed and route network. Company bicycles and collective taxis can also be used to link the workplace to public transport services.

Measure 4 Making collective transport more attractive      
Convenient collective transport is of prime importance. However, the quality of the journey is also important. Provision of safe and attractive walking links to stops is important. The stops and stations themselves also need to have good waiting facilities, which are well lit. Finally, the vehicles themselves need to be comfortable. All three elements are essential components of the public transport journey and it is important to ensure each is of good quality.

Measure 5 Promote car-pooling      
When collective transport is not or poorly available, promoting car-pooling and increasing car occupancy can be an easy and cost effective way to reduce the number of cars in home-work traffic, providing working hours are regular and employees can be matched together.

Measure 7 Make cycling more attractive      
Good cycle infrastructure is important if you want to promote cycling. However other non infrastructure services for cycling can also have an important effect on its image, comfort and success.

Measure 8 Provide alternative modes for work related trips      
If employees have to use their own cars for business and service trips, this means that they have no alternative but to drive to work. Therefore, if pool cars or alternative modes can be provided for business trips, they may be able to use alternative modes for the home-work journey.

Measure 9 Parking management      
The certainty of finding a guaranteed and free parking spot at the work place encourages you employees to come to work by car. If you want to encourage employees to come to work using alternative modes of transport, parking management is heavily recommended.
