Reduce employee commute costs, emissions, parking demand
Are your employees suffering from long commute times and high commute cost? Public transit not working out for some employees? Running out of parking spots? Or maybe as an organization, you want to demonstrate leadership in responsibility towards the environment and reduce CO2 emissions by promoting alternative modes? If your goal is to improve employee commute, we have some good news! The iCarpool platform has solutions that can be customized specific to your needs.
What is it?
iCarpool is a flexible carpooling app that helps employees find, connect and carpool with others going their way. You already have employees who prefer to drive to work. These employees have empty seats that are moving between your office locations deep into residential communities and past major thoroughfare points. Use iCarpool to turn these empty seats into a flexible mobility option for employees who prefer to ride. Carpooling is a direct point-to-point option that can save effort, time and money and that reaches places public transit does not.
