DLR Invests in New, Smarter Travel Options for Staff

10. 07. 2019

As part of the Smart Mobility Hub, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council have engaged in the development of a platform for staff to access to e-cars, e-bikes and pushbikes for off-site business travel, reducing commuting congestion and emissions in the county.

Launched on 20 June, 2019, the pilot project undertaken by dlrcc will see the work which has been done to date through the Smart Mobility Hub challenge by providing access to e-cars, e-bikes and pushbikes for off-site visits and business in the county through a web app.  Following the evaluation of the pilot scheme the app, designed by Aecom, may be deployed across the four Dublin Local Authorities meaning fewer staff cars on the road at rush-hour with less congestion and an improvement in air quality.

At the moment, dlrcc have a fleet of 17 e-cars and vans for working employees to use day to day. In addition, they have four e-cars available to staff for use on council business. 

Also they request their employees to try e-cars and e-bikes.
