Carplus Benefi t:Cost Ratio Calculator. Checklist.
This section helps to identify any additional data required for the BCR calculator.
Do you have any local data for: Average journey length For example the Isle of Wight assessment has assumed a reduced average journey length in line with Census data
Do you have data from a car club scheme very similar to yours for: Average members per car
Average mileage per car Average net reduction in car use per member Average increase in walking Average increase in cycling
Are there special features of the local patterns of transport and land use which lead you to adjust national averages for:
Average members per car Average mileage per car Average net reduction in car use per member Average increase in walking
Average increase in cycling Again using the Isle of Wight it was clear that shorter journeys would be likely – this triggered inspection of Census data for journey to work and a downward adjustment to refl ect it.
For rural examples it may be that lower than average members per car would be used. However, in this case it would be important to note other features such as improving lower than average rural accessibility to the labour market, schools, shops and other facilities.
NB In areas with high multi-car ownership there may be fewer members per car but greater potential for decreasing car miles per member
Costs Are there special factors aff ecting the cost of your scheme, for example:
Low costs due to a high contribution from another source?
High costs due to special requirements for the scheme, e.g. accessibility?
Are there external contributions from other Government funds (identify risk of double counting)?
Are there other special factors which need to be noted? For example will membership or mileages be infl uenced where mixed public and site specifi c such as local authority itself (as in Eastleigh)?
