Here at Professional Charter Services, we believe in offering great benefits to our customers while you’re offering great benefits to yours. Intercampus shuttles are a great employee benefit, and we make it easy for you to get your intercampus shuttle route up and running in the way that works for you. In our last blog post, we discussed the need for intercampus shuttles and some of the reasons why companies like yours might choose to implement that solution. Today, we’ll take a closer look at the benefits that you can obtain from having intercampus shuttles for your different business locations.
1. Intercampus shuttles get people from point A to point B
If you’re a company that has different job sites or work locations within the San Francisco area, some of your people will need to get around to the different locations some of the time. Rather than letting them walk, ride a bike, or take public transportation, why not send them on a comfortable shuttle that gets them straight to their destination with the least amount of hassle? For the companies who have implemented intercampus shuttles, they never want to go back to the way things were before.
2. Intercampus shuttles are efficient
In an economy as competitive as the one in San Francisco, you can’t afford for people to lose time in transit. When someone needs to take a trip from one of your locations to another, you need their trip to be efficient, direct, and timely. Waiting 30 minutes at a bus stop for a bus that makes 3 stops on the way and then drops your employee off 5 blocks from the door of the other location is not our idea of efficiency. There’s no comparison between that scenario and riding on a shuttle that takes the shortest and fastest route to your other business location. Don’t let your employees get bogged down in transit that robs their productivity. An intercampus shuttle can make all the difference in the world.
3. Intercampus shuttles are convenient
In other cities, people would achieve the convenience factor by simply hopping behind the wheel of their own personal vehicles and driving to the place they want to go. In San Francisco, that’s the opposite of convenient. Ever spend 45 minutes just looking for a parking place, only to finally find one and pay what would be a month’s wages in some countries to occupy that spot? Yeah. But that certainly doesn’t mean that convenience is no longer an option. In fact, intercampus shuttles are a powerful way to offer convenient transportation between sites.
4. Intercampus shuttles are affordable
If you think that you couldn’t possibly afford an intercampus shuttle, think again. We’ve priced our intercampus shuttle service attractively so that you can easily implement it without breaking the bank.
Don’t have sufficient numbers of people traveling between sites to feel like you can justify it just yet? One option you could consider is to schedule your shuttles to run only on the days and times when you need them, and encourage all your employees to schedule their site visits only on the days that the shuttle is running. That way, your intercampus shuttle will fit your budget and grow with your company.
Another option that you can keep in mind is that you can choose a shuttle vehicle that most closely matches the estimated number of seats you’ll fill. No need to send a humongous bus to pick up seven or eight people.
Just tell us what your needs are and we can guide you to an intercampus shuttle package that most closely matches what you are looking for.
5. Intercampus shuttles are better for the environment
When you think about the way that most companies outside of the SF Bay area handle their site visits (i.e. by car, in individual, personal vehicles), you can easily begin to picture the toll that this takes on the environment. Instead of everyone going together in one vehicle at coordinated times, all of those vehicles are running across town at random times, often with only one occupant per car (the driver). In that respect, the pressure in San Francisco not to drive is actually a benefit.
6. Intercampus shuttles are an employee delighter
People appreciate it when you save them from frustration. When someone’s job description requires them to travel from one location to another, it can be frustrating to have to navigate the hassle of transportation to get to their destination. Not every employee will have a role like this, but for the ones who do, they will deeply appreciate it when you put some thought into making this part of their job easier. Employee loyalty can’t be bought, but paying for an employee delighter like intercampus shuttles can go a long way towards making your employees feel like they work for the best company ever.
7. Intercampus shuttles can vary from the set route to avoid traffic
San Francisco traffic is famous, and sometimes, the gridlock picks the most inconvenient spots to show up. If your employees are taking public buses, they can’t vary from the prescribed route. Traffic or no traffic, they’ll go where they’re programmed to go. But your intercampus shuttle has the freedom to go where it makes the most sense. Come on. Why can’t your bus driver do that? We all have access to Google Maps and navigation systems that help you predict the traffic. Why not go the fastest route, even when that isn’t the “scripted” or “normal” route? We think it makes sense to get you there faster.
