Incentivising staff carpooling
In July 2018, Gatwick was the first airport to launch incentivised carpooling for airport staff with FAXI, an innovative, technology led transport service.
The FAXI platform offers staff priority parking spaces in real time and tracks their associated reduction in vehicle miles and emissions in real time when they carpool. The Faxi smartphone app enables employees to find colleagues who share the same route and commute times, so that they can carpool to work and benefit from priority on-site parking.
The app is unique in that it can accurately verify who has shared a journey, thereby ensuring the scheme rewards go to the active participants. In the first nine months, our FAXI carpoolers saved 73,861 vehicle miles, 30 tonnes of CO2 and 25kg of NOx.
