The First Mile/Last Mile problem

As traditional transport infrastructure stretches further out into the suburbs to service expanding cities it creates gaps, leaving commuters marooned in zones too far from stations and transport routes to easily use them.

Getting to stations and transport routes is the initial stage of the first/last mile problem, and it’s sometimes repeated at the end of a bus or train trip with the ultimate destination still a hike away.

Solving this problem by bringing fresh thinking to traditional transport approaches is the focus of our latest whitepaper, and the ideas in it could soon be gaining advocates in your own fleet.
