18  Have the spaces where they can be monitored  Only issue permits to those that are in a ‘BUDi team’ which then allow members to park in the dedicated spaces  If the spaces are misused remove the privilege – 3 strikes and you are out/clamp those that persistently abuse the spaces but ensure your policy is available to view on the intranet with all other car-sharing information

19  To successfully get your message across you need to decide who you are targeting o Staff? o Students? o Part time staff/students? o Visitors?  How many members do you want? o Set a target

20  Set a target  Promote the scheme  Use appealing marketing materials  Support from management  Integration in to your travel plan  A marketing plan  Know the barriers  Persevere  Incentives

21  Dedicated car-sharing bays  Guaranteed ride home scheme  Monthly prize draws for carwashes, vouchers for canteen, printing vouchers for students  Gifts when joining or setting up a BUDi team such as air fresheners, key rings, chocolate, etc The rewards don’t have to be car parking related.
