Time-consuming transportation to work is a daily struggle for the working population. While transportation planners strive to address a growing population and cope with worsening traffic congestion, transportation service providers find it increasingly difficult to meet the complex and changing demand, and organizations face difficulties in employees hiring and retaining as people find it hard to get to a workplace. Cities worldwide are searching for smart transportation solutions to ease the pain of their working citizens.
