When we launched CityMotion at the end of 2018, we brought real-time information about curated, relevant transportation options to your fingertips. No matter where you open CityMotion, you’ll see exactly which mobility choices are nearby, when they’re coming, and how you can get to them.
“It’s as easy as riding a bike,” is a cliche that has been in our vocabulary since the wheel was invented. The reason it has stuck is because once you learn, you never forget! There’s no license required, no test to pass, and no insurance needed, unlike its motorized counterpart. Cars are expensive, dangerous, and bad for the environment, and yet driving is more encouraged than biking. But that’s all changing – even if it’s a slow change.
Congestion pricing is making its way into cities around the world. This commuting toll charges people to drive on the busiest streets, at the busiest times, in some of the busiest cities. Although this charge is a major change to what people have become accustomed in our car-centric society, the benefits that have come from existing programs have proven it a worthy investment.
Cities have seen firsthand how scooters can change the way people get around. Residents zip around on these two-wheeled electric vehicles. From executives in suits to young professionals in jeans and t-shirts, more and more people are opting for this new wave of transportation.
The growth of a company is largely categorized into five stages. Progressing from the developmental stage, followed by the startup stage, into growth, then expansion, finished with the maturity stage. A sign of company growth – aside from revenue and profit – is the size of your workforce. The more success a company has, the more the need for hiring employees grows. One of the most important things you can keep in mind during company growth is employee commutes.
San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area is a hotspot for new technology, state-of-the art offices, and advanced city planning initiatives. Companies like Facebook and Google are trailblazers when it comes to employee amenities such as company bikes, bike repair shops, and corporate shuttle programs.
Providing a private shuttle program can significantly improve your employees’ way of life during the week. Relieving the stress of employee commutes can be the difference between keeping or losing top talent. Nearly a quarter of employees leave their jobs because of dreadful commutes and it’s up to employers to help.
