Commute+ Reimagined: Alternative Commute Modes Post COVID-19
July 15, 2020 – hosted by Transitscreen

WeDriveU’s Managing Director of Customer Success, Shawn Kelly, will join executives from Transitscreen, Scoop and Swiftmile to discuss safe and smart alternative commute modes and how we’re working with employers to develop return to work commute plans.
