Shared mobility: car sharing and more, with the MAES mobility card
The sharing economy is on the rise: more and more people realize that ‘use’ is much more useful than ‘owning’, and sharing drills and vacuum cleaners with their neighbors. This principle can also easily be applied to means of transport, such as the success of, among others, Poppy, Villo! and demonstrates Scooty. Shared mobility has many advantages and is central to a sustainable mobility policy. Even for business mobility, shared cars, part-bicycles, part-scooters or even part-cars are often indispensable. Fortunately, the MAES Mobility Card bundles all those options on one handy card – and in one convenient app.
The advantages of shared cars and bicycles
Those who often have to go to work for their job know only too well that business mobility stands or falls with flexibility. Through a smart combination of cycling, taking public transport and doing shared mobility, you improve accessibility and your travel comfort, and save costs. Moreover, you contribute your part to a healthier environment by using a shared car instead of using your own car.
