We help municipalities, businesses, and condominiums improve their sustainability and sense of community
Municipalities – sustainable economic development & community engagement: lead by example
Economic Development Example: New York City added a protected bike lane on 9th avenue and reported up to 49% increase in retail sales.
Adding bicycle infrastructure can be part of the solution to creating local jobs, attracting new businesses, residents, supporting “buy local” campaigns and reinvigorating communities. One of the best ways to make this happen, is to lead by example and utilize cargo bikes as part of your public works department. Many tasks do not require the use of heavy equipment and trucks, and can easily be substituted for cargo bikes. Best of all, by using a cargo bike, it allows you to engage with your community – on a daily basis – because being on a bike makes you more accessible, and at the same time, by using your bicycle infrastructure it will encourage others to do the same.
Businesses – improve your brand and build deeper relationships with your customers
Adding cargo bike delivery options allows you to connect with your customers by providing a more personal service, demonstrating that sustainability is important of your business and your brand. Moreover, delivering by bike makes you part of the community (as opposed to driving through it) and makes it easy to stop, chat, and gain new customers along the way!
Corporate – attract the top talent, improve recruitment & retention
Sometimes it is the “little things” that make a big difference to employees (and their productivity) and being bicycle friendly is becoming increasingly important. The best part is, it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. For example, you can add a couple of footbikes for your employees to use at lunch.
Condominiums and apartments – attract prospective owners/renters
We can work with you to implement bike and cargo bike sharing service for your residents. It is an easy way of providing your residents with easy access to a sustainable mode of transportation, which is increasingly in demand by urban dwellers – especially the “creative class”.
