Provide your employees with real-time parking data, now in CityMotion

Posted by Team TransitScreen on 6/29/20 11:54 AM

At TransitScreen, our focus has always been on lowering the number of drive-alone commutes — whether that's through public transit, biking, carpooling, or any myriad option. With the onset of COVID-19, however, commutes have been completely disrupted (to the point where many of us are simply traveling from our beds to our couches).

As offices begin to reopen and employees begin commuting once more, concern over increased drive-alone rates is rampant. Many employers can't afford to add more parking (or simply don't want to), but employees may not initially feel safe on the subway or bus. We're incorporating real-time parking into our CityMotion mobile app to support your commute management program through this challenging time, while continuing to provide information to push your employees toward sustainable options.
