Companies nowadays are getting creative when it comes to incentives and benefits for their employees. One trend that has been emerging recently is providing commuter shuttles to transport employees between off-site parking locations or designated community stops and the office. Take a look at how an employee shuttle service can be an advantage for your business!
Show employees you care about them.
Employees who feel like their employers care about their health and happiness are more productive in the office and loyal to their company. A shuttle service offers workers a chance to relax and take a break in the morning and after a long day at work, as well as saves them time and money on independent transportation. It shows them that you support a healthy work-life balance and recognize their value.
Encourage staff bonding.
A bus commute is an excellent opportunity for your team to get to know each other and build relationships. These relationships help solidify your corporate identity and reflect positively on you as a company. They’ll also lead to a better work culture and more in-office collaboration.
Save money on parking and other transportation costs.
Parking structures and land for parking lots do not come cheap. Investing in a shuttle bus is more cost-efficient alternative for meeting employee transportation needs (especially if you buy used). Depending on the size of your company, it also usually works out to be cheaper than reimbursing employees for mileage. Plus, offering a commuter service qualifies your company for additional tax benefits.
Make your company eco-friendlier.
Everybody loves a green business these days. Bus transportation has many environmental benefits, so offering a shuttle service can add a sustainable element to your company’s reputation. The carbon emissions from a single vehicle are far less than those of 30 single-passenger vehicles. Relying on bus travel therefore reduces the carbon footprint of your business.
