Beginning in 2005, an evaluation was undertaken of a TravelSmart project in South Australia. The evaluation was undertaken using a panel of households, members of which were asked to carry GPS devices with them for a number of days. The panel comprised 200 households, and only household members over the age of 14 were asked to carry the GPS devices. This paper reports on the three waves of panel measurement that took place in 2005-2007. It documents the successes and failures of the panel survey, and describes the results, which indicate a substantial decrease in car use and some potential decrease in car ownership among households that participated in TravelSmart, compared to those that did not.
