Corporate bike-sharing? More like expertise sharing this time 😉
Yesterday we had an awesome opportunity to share our vision with Latin America. Thanks to Switzerland Global Enterprise & Empa, Urban Connect AG together with other Swiss start-ups in the urban mobility sector managed to showcase their business initiatives aiming to solve a bigger social problem. 🚗💨
The Latin American megapolis of Bogotá (Colombia) ranked as the city with the longest traffic delays in the world, where drivers loose an average of 272 (🥵) hours per year due to traffic jams.
Switzerland is an innovative country regarding urban mobility. There's enough space on Swiss trains for almost the entire population of Iceland, offering a total seating capacity of 291,000. Swiss city infrastructure is increasingly becoming more accommodating for cyclists & pedestrians, and not cars.
We hope that the know-how of presenting companies will help rethink and redesign the approach to human transportation in Latin America.
