Finally, when evaluating a greenhouse gas (GHG) profile, it is important to consider what specific incentives would most influence an employee's decision to adopt an alternative to single-occupancy vehicle commuting and what employees perceive as major barriers to using certain alternatives. Agencies must determine whether they can influence commute behavior changes with the strategies described in the following section.
To illustrate, survey data from Worksite B2 in Figure 1 below summarize the reasons why employees drive alone and factors that would motivate them to use an alternative commuting. In this example financial incentives, ride-matching support, and implementing more on-site benefits/services may be effective strategies for addressing both the primary reasons people drive alone and the factors that would motivate employees to using a commute alternative.
