Give the Gift of Time

Posted by Simon Caballero on

The Holidays mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. They are a time for reflection, for celebration, for remembrance. Above all else they are a time to spend with family and loved ones, away from the grind and stress of the work week. Many people would give anything just for one more day with those in their life they hold most dear.

With URB-E, you can give them four.

In Boston a 25 minute commute by car from Copley to Brookline Village turns into 15 minutes by URB-E in the city's bike lanes. No need to drain your Charlie Card cramming yourself onto the Green Line during rush hour either.

In New York, a 30 minute drive in bumper to bumper traffic from Rockefeller center to the Upper West Side turns into a 15 minute cruise as you carve through a sea of yellow cabs, giving you all the benefits of a bicycle with none of the sweat.

In Los Angeles, a trip from Mid City Santa Monica to Highland Park during rush hour takes an hour and a half. With URB-E, and some help from our good friends at the Los Angeles MTA, that same trip can be accomplished in 50 minutes with 6 dollars from your TAP card.

With traffic that somehow manages to move even slower than Congress, DC and DMV rush hour is infamous across the country. With URB-E and the Metro Red Line you can get from Down Town to Bethesda in less than half the time it would take you to drive. (would you prefer minute counts? 25 vs 11?)

In Austin, a trip from Guadalupe street downtown back to campus at UT Austin, can be done in 10 minutes with a dollar twenty five metro fair, instead of 20 minutes and a car payment. No Uber no problem.

A Seattleites evening commute from Downtown to Wallingford can be cut from 30 minutes to 22, with an URB-E and a metro ride. Just Hop on the 62 and you'll be home quicker than that Amazon drone up above.

In San Fransisco, traveling from the Financial District to the Mission during rush hour can take up to 45 minutes. With URB-E and BART, that same trip can take you 8 minutes for a $1.95!

On average, an URB-E user saves 22 minutes a day that would have otherwise been spent commuting.

That adds up to almost two hours a week, 4 days a year that can be added to your life for doing what you want and love. 4 extra days to spend at the gym. 4 extra days to spend reading that book that's been sitting on the shelf. 4 extra days to spend with family and friends.

The URB-E is the perfect Holiday gift for those you hold closest. You are not just giving them the best way to get from a to b. You are giving them the gift of time; the gift to live their life to the fullest, in ways impossible before the URB-E.

This Holiday season don't just give someone a gift. Change their life.
