Reimagining the daily commute
According to our recent survey, 77% of workers say they’ll now be avoiding public transit for their daily commute.² This presents a tough challenge for businesses in metropolitan areas where public transit has historically been the most available means of getting to work. Those who previously relied on buses and trains are going to have to find a new way to get to their workplace.
Companies should look to other options that help their employees feel safer on their way to the office. Riding bikes and walking are great ways to be in the open air and avoid enclosed spaces filled with people. Additionally, 3 out of 4 respondents to our survey consider ridesharing to be a safer alternative to public transit. Creating a commute program that subsidizes the entire cost of a trip or just a part of it can help make ridesharing accessible and affordable for your employees.
