Vehicle to Employee Ratio

 

Vehicle to Employee Ratio

Does anyone know of a formula that gives a vehicle to employee ratio? I am looking at how many vehicles we should have in our pool vehicle setup, as to how many employees utilize them.

Thank you

Much would depend on the functions of the employee group being supported. Lots of administrative staff that did not travel a lot would be a high employee to vehicle ration. Conversely, a pool that supported lots of field staff that travelled a lot, would require fewer employees per vehicle. If it is available, I think a better measure would be annual employee miles for the group of employees in question. divide that number by some reasonable annual usage and you have a pretty good estimate of vehicles required. I recognize that there are many legislators, auditors, and others that just want the ratio -- and it may be somewhat useful, but I believe there are better ways.
