A coalition of mobility experts have come together to produce an expert guide to managing employee transportation in the COVID era. The COVID Employee Transportation Playbook maps out how a broad range of mobility options including e-scooters, carsharing, bikesharing and parking software can make it easier and safer for employers to return staff safely to the office.
A recent McKinsey report showed commuter confidence in transport options has changed radically over the last course of the pandemic with only 7% of respondents believing public transport is a safe way to travel. This is raising serious questions for many employers who need to figure out alternative ways to attract staff back to the office.
The publication features contributions from a host of leading voices in the mobility, real estate and transport industries including Kathryn Hagerman Medina (Ride Amigos), Carl Pittam (Ubeeqo), Will O’Brien (Zipp Mobility), Sarah McCartan (CitySwift) & Hugh Cooney (Bleeper Bikes).
Key points include:
The increasing demand for parking and e-bikes as employees avoid public transport in the short-term.
The challenges facing micro-mobility operators who are often used by public transport users to complete journeys.
The steps public transport operators are taking to restore confidence to their services as a mode of employee transportation.
