Overall Project Description show_help

This Beter Benutten project aims at people drive less or not in the triangle Utrecht, Hilversum, Amersfoort and the A12 between Lunetten and Maarsbergen, between 6.30 and 9.30 and between 15.30 and 18.30 For this is a reward system used. Peak hour clear (Spitsvrij) participants have an S-Box of the car received. This S-Box sends peakhourmovements invisible to Spitsvrij Backoffice.

Participants drive 40% less during peak hours. That means that every day 3347 fewer cars drive during peak hours during the project
This results in 129.000 less car kilometers per day during the peak. As a total, 0,2 % of the road users take car of 1 % reduction in travel time for all road users. The benefit/cost ratio of the project is 1,45.

The project also contained a gaming element, however participants needed to meet in order to play the game. This didn't add to the project, as almost no one took part.
