A Partnership for Mobility Solutions to Today’s Commuter
The phrase “first and last mile” refers to the distance between the transit stop and the final destination. Most public transit spots are far from workers’ homes or offices, and most employees aren’t comfortable walking beyond a quarter a mile.
According to transit experts, micro-mobility is the perfect solution to bridge this gap. These advanced mobility options make it easier for workers to access transit stations, allowing them to reach their final destination flexibly, safely, and faster.
The partnership between Edenred and Ridepanda will undoubtedly add more options to address workers’ commute challenges through a wider variety of environmentally-friendly transit options.
