On September 1st, CNH Industrial began providing employees of its Turin North plants access to the innovative Myshuttle! service. The on-demand company shuttle works as a complement to public transport and helps the company to pursue its sustainable mobility goals.
Through MYshuttle! employees can book shuttle rides according to their needs and thanks to the technology of Via, a leader in TransitTech solutions for transforming public mobility, it will be possible to group several passengers heading in a similar direction and optimize their movement with the use of a single vehicle. This will significantly reduce the environmental impact of passenger transport. The partnership with CNH is the first in Italy for Via, which already has more than 500 partners such as municipalities, public transport services, companies and school districts worldwide.
The service operated by Bus Company, one of the largest passenger transport companies in the region and which already has a long-standing partnership with CNH Industrial, will connect the main local public transport hubs and will operate during the peak times for people entering and leaving the plants. In order to reduce environmental impact, two IVECO Daily minibuses with reduced emissions will be used.
Kristof Breyne, HR Business Partner for the Agricultural segment of CNH Industrial, said: "With MYshuttle! we are able to accompany employees to work by offering a service that is integrated into the city system, highly customizable, safe and in line with the demands for flexibility that the new social and work evolution requires".
Daniela Ropolo, Head of Sustainable Development Initiatives at CNH Industrial, said: "MYshuttle! concretely interprets the concept of smart mobility and the link with sustainable mobility, technology and innovation, all factors that are integrated into the mobility of tomorrow".
Chris Snyder, CEO of Via Europe, said: "Via's mission is to build equitable, flexible and accessible transport systems around the world. MyShuttle! will improve the daily transport experience for the company's employees in Turin, while also enhancing access to public transport through easy first and last mile transport connectionsWe are excited to work with CNH Industrial to demonstrate how technology-enabled employee transportation can be a solution for other companies throughout Italy."
