57% of business drivers would consider giving up their car

Date: 03 February 2020   |   Author: Illya Verpraet

More than half of business drivers would consider getting rid of their car in favour of carpooling, ridesharing, a car club or public transport, a survey found.

The survey by Venson Automotive Solutions surveyed 200 people and found that 57% of business drivers would consider alternative transport options.

42% was open to ridesharing or carpooling, where drivers offer empty seats to others travelling to a similar destination, such as their office or business area. 28% was interested in car clubs, and 26% said that combining public transport with the employer providing minibus collection to and from the nearest station or bus stop would actively change their attitude.

Alison Bell, marketing director for Venson Automotive Solutions said: "With improved range on electric cars, a company pool car scheme is one solution for businesses with grey fleet drivers, delivering a viable alternative to using their own vehicle on company business.

"Offering such alternatives can help businesses to not only achieve their environmental goals but also reduce transport costs."
