Telecommuting/teleworking: a new way to look at mobility

Project Details


The road congestion problem in Brussels is augmenting from year to year. international research suggests that telecommuting/teleworking has a favourable influence on road congestion; As Brussels has a high proportion of workers employed in the service sector it provides the ideal setting for the introduction of telecommuting/teleworking on a large scale. The following stages can be identified:1. description of the current situation in Brussels;2. determination of the organizational framework and the individual choice patterns of employees;3. development of policy tools that promote teleworking/telecommuting;4. determination of the potential of teleworking/telecommuting;5. assessment of the impact of teleworking/telecommuting on road congestion, the environment and road safety.
