Movability has a new membership program, and we’re excited to be working with employers, service providers, and individuals that all want to find better ways to commute and help Austin’s economy thrive. We’re excited to be welcoming several new members on board this month! Read on to learn who they are, what they do in Austin, and why they see being mobility leaders as so important for our community.
- Endeavor Real Estate Group opened its doors in 1999 to focus on meaningful, high-quality projects that will have a positive impact on the community, and has been creating value ever since. This team is committed to “paying it forward” and is actively involved with a number of community organizations. It is with this spirit that Endeavor Real Estate Group joined the City of Austin’s Mobility Challenge initiative, pledging to reduce the number of employees driving alone to work during peak travel periods each day by 20% by the year 2020. Endeavor sees the Mobility Challenge as a way to enhance the lives of Endeavor’s employees and serve the community by helping to ease demand on the region’s transportation infrastructure.
- As the leader in corporate transportation, WeDriveU specializes in Commute Alternative solutions for employers and managed properties in Austin and nationwide. WeDriveU leads TDM strategy, implementation, passenger engagement and analytics, including Last Mile and Intercampus shuttles, Residential Bus Service and On-Demand Transportation. WeDriveU is also a pioneering partner of the Mobility Challenge and is teaming up with Movability Austin on innovative approaches that help workplaces improve productivity, attract talent and boost sustainability.
- Car2go is the pioneer of one-way carsharing, offering an innovative mobility solution via a flexible network of smart fortwo and Mercedes-Benz vehicles. By eliminating the need to return vehicles to the spot the trip began, car2go gives members the freedom of car ownership without the associated costs and responsibilities, enabling a multimodal lifestyle by bridging the gap between “the first and last mile.” With a goal of increasing mobility solutions for Austinites, partnering with Movability Austin is a natural fit for car2go. Car2Go has also helped Movability launch our new membership program by upgrading their membership level!
- Commute Matters offers a new service for multi-site businesses to help improve employee retention. Commute Matters uses their software product to optimize your longest employee commutes, by finding available employee “swaps” for equivalent roles and offering employees a closer business location. Employees save valuable time and money, and reduce their commute by an average of 10 miles each way. The business sees reduced turnover, better attendance, better morale and better productivity.
