Shared Mobility In Your Campus

Candor TechSpace offers shared mobility solutions to the employees working at its campuses, thereby helping them enjoy a variety of benefits, from cleaner air (due to reduced air pollution) to easier, more comfortable journeys to and from office.

Over the last few decades, India’s cities have been witnessing increasing ownership of motorised vehicles and decreasing use of public and non-motorised transport. These factors have led to an increase in congestion on the roads, air pollution and carbon emissions. As per news reports, transportation accounts for around 11 per cent of India’s carbon emissions and is a major source of pollution in several cities across the country. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution kills 7 million people annually and India alone accounts for more than a million deaths of people who have breathed polluted air. Moreover, a Skymet report on air quality index (AQI) states that three of the top 10 highest polluted cities are in India—Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata.

This is where shared mobility solutions can help, since they can build a better, environment-friendly tomorrow. Shared mobility refers to the shared use of a vehicle, bicycle or other mode of transport for daily work commute. There are several advantages of opting for such services. For instance, as each vehicle is utilised by multiple users, lesser is the need of adding new vehicles on the road. The lesser the number of vehicles plying on the road, lower are the emissions. Thus, apart from helping alleviate massive road congestion, shared mobility solutions can also help improve air quality. Moreover, from the ease of using a ride-sharing or carpooling app like Quick Ride, etc, and just getting into one’s booked vehicle to avoiding the costs of vehicle ownership and the hassle of finding a parking space in crowded cities, shared mobility solutions can give users a convenient, smooth and easier journey to and from their destination every day.

Keeping in mind all these benefits, Candor has tied up with different mobility solution providers.
