Zeelo is an alternative shared transport solution that offers personalised coach and bus services for group travel. We transport thousands of people to both work and events, using technology to provide the best route and service to fit their needs. There are many benefits to using these services, including personalised commuter transport. Here are just some of the reasons your business needs Zeelo in 2020.
Meet your company’s sustainability targets
Transport is a substantial and growing contributor to air pollution exposures. According to the World Health Organisation, road transport is responsible for up to 30% of particulate emissions. Businesses, where each employee drives to and from work every day, adds to a lot of vehicles on the road. The effect of this is growing, and with the welfare of our environment being of increasing concern more businesses are looking for new and unique ways to reduce their impact.
Hit your sustainability targets and promote yourself as a sustainable business by reducing one of the biggest causes of emissions. Being an ethical business and showing you care for the environment also makes you much more attractive as a potential employer.
Free up parking space
The costs of providing and maintaining car parking for your business can really mount up – the land itself, the upkeep of the spaces, the technology needed for parking barriers or employees hired as parking attendants to name but a few. By providing commuter services, like those offered by Zeelo, you can reduce the number of people driving to work which in turn means less parking spaces are required.
If you don’t provide parking spaces for your staff then removing their need to drive will save your employees time and money. It might take a long time to find a space near your business or the parking costs may be high, especially in towns and cities where parking is at a premium.
Reduce stress in the workplace
Our daily commutes are often the most stressful part of the working day and can cause staff to arrive at work in need of a break before they even get started. Being stuck for hours on end in traffic or crammed on a delayed busy train; the options are often infuriating and not conducive to kickstarting a productive day.
By offering commuter transport staff can get to work on time in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Instead of focusing on driving, employees can relax, catch up on some work or just chat with their colleagues outside the office. They arrive at work less frustrated and ready for the day ahead, having already caught up with their colleagues on the journey.
Retain staff and keep them loyal
Offering employees perks shows your staff you are invested in not only their wellbeing but also their future and offering a more relaxing commute can be a great one. Your business may be in a difficult to get to location, parking may be tight, or the hours may vary and not coincide with local public transport.
By offering an alternative and easier commute you make your company a more appealing place to work. You also save your employees the cost of wear and tear to their own personal vehicles as well as fuel too. It is a benefit that similar employers may not offer and might just help keep your best staff working for you rather than your competitors.
Regular services or one-off bookings
If you’re looking to introduce or update the way your employees travel to work each day our daily commuter buses may be what you need. Using data and technology we work with businesses to build the best possible route for their employees. Choose personalised pick-up points that suit your staff and Zeelo will arrange the right times and routes for your business needs.
You could also use Zeelo as a one-off to transport staff to an event. This could be for a large external meeting, or perhaps a team building or away day. Travelling together is easy for the organiser and everyone can attend without the worry about finding the venue or securing parking. Find out more about what Zeelo can do for your business.
