This paper aims at analysing the impact the attitudes to Employer Transport Plans (ETP) have on their effectiveness. To achieve this aim, a survey among mobility managers of companies located in Belgium is performed and data of a large scale survey about mobility behaviours are used. The results show that employees and employers are mainly favourable to ETP and that parking management is a sensitive issue among the employees. The commuting of the employees of companies having achieved to reduce the importance of car parks for the employees tend to be less dependant on the car. It also comes out that support for the management to communication on ETP is important. Finally, the paper shows that the commuting of employees of companies located in the urban fringe is more based on the car than the other, even though the presence of alternatives as capable than in city centre.
