The way that people live their lives is rapidly changing. As Urban population density continues to increase, and traditional car based commuting becomes outmoded, a new form of transportation is needed.
While cities around the world are working diligently to improve their public transportation infrastructure, and ride sharing services like Lyft and Uber are attempting to tackle the carless life style, all of them fall short in one key area; their reach. None of these services offer a solution for the first and last mile; the distance that commuters must travel to access these alternatives to car based transportation. Without a way to bridge this gap, many commuters are unable to take advantage of a carless, 21st century approach to urban commuting.
The Los Angeles times highlights the need for first and last mile transportation as the key pain point that must be addressed in urban areas as the 21st century progresses.
NPR has deemed finding the solution to this problem as the "Holy Grail"
of modern transportation development, a role which URB-E is more than ready to fill.With a range of 20 miles, and weighing only 35lbs, URB-E gets you to, from, on and off any train, bus or ride sharing with unparalleled ease.
