Staggered Shifts: where work shifts are staggered to reduce the number of employees arriving and leaving a worksite at one time. For example, some shifts may be set to start from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., others from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and others from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Telecommuting: refers to salaried employees who are allowed to work from home or another location (such as a telework center) to reduce commute travel.
Figure 23 TRIMMS – Soft Program Module: Step Six
By clicking the “Finish” button, the module closes and the model automatically switches to the “Results” worksheet. The final mode shares previously estimated and displayed in Figure 16 are adjusted to compensate for the impacts produced by the soft program evaluation and are displayed in Figure 24. The combined effect of a soft and hard program produced a reduction of 241 vehicle trips, a net benefit of $871.00 at urban peak values, and a benefit to cost ratio of 8.0.
