Is a nudge as good as a wink? The future of smarter choices in the UK

The DfT’s evaluation of a recent set of ‘pilot interventions’, delivered to staff at Heathrow Airport, provides useful and valuable insight into the state of the smarter choices industry; hinting at how it could re-position itself within the transport planning sector.  Whilst on the face of it the findings show limited success in terms of changing behaviour, the report openly acknowledges that this was likely to be expected given Heathrow has already largely saturated employees with sustainable transport interventions over many years, and that the context and location of Heathrow makes it very difficult to shift people away from single occupancy car use. 

It should also be noted that all of the previous research in this field would have pointed to a similar set of conclusions.  For example, DfT’s own research in 2004 pointed to limited effectiveness of personal travel planning (PTP) in the workplace, when compared to similar PTP community programmes.  Hence, applying very subtle ‘nudge’ style interventions in the Heathrow context was always unlikely to have any sizeable impact.  However, the problem runs much deeper than simply the wrong interventions in the wrong location.
