New Paper on Influence of Joint Provision of Commuter Benefits in the Washington DC Area

The Journal of Public Transportation just published our new paper “Commuter Mode Choice and Free Car Parking, Public Transportation Benefits, Showers/Lockers, and Bike Parking at Work: Evidence from the Washington, DC Region.”

Here is a link to the paper.JPT

Here are the key findings:

– Commuters offered either public transportation benefits, showers/lockers, or bike parking, but no free car parking, are more likely to either ride public transportation, walk, or cycle to work.

– The joint provision of benefits for public transportation, walking, and cycling is related to an increased likelihood to commute by all three of these modes and a decreased likelihood of driving.

– However, the inclusion of free car parking in benefit packages alongside benefits for public transportation, walking, and cycling, seems to offset the effect of these incentives.

– Benefits for public transportation, walking, and cycling, seem to work best when car parking is not free.
