As one of Europe’s busiest airports and with a staff base of 38,000 employees, the parking situation at Gatwick is colossal. Worse still, so is the congestion on local roads. With such a vast pool of employees driving similar routes to work and at similar times, and most of them travelling in vehicles alone, it is easy to see why such unnecessary pollution is a concern for the airport sustainability team.
As part of its initiative to become the UK’s most sustainable airport, Gatwick wanted to incentivise its employees who carpool to work in order to reduce traffic and pollution.
Over time, those drivers who regularly transport the most passengers to and from work were to be given the opportunity to upgrade to a staff car park of their choice. These car parks are located up to one mile closer to the terminal buildings, potentially reducing commuting time by up to 40 minutes each day.
Accurate incentives are only achievable if an employer knows which employees are carpooling, and when, so implementation of the technology was essential to success.
