Shared transport specialist Kura is partnering with last mile automation experts Wayleadr, which specialises in automating, allocating and optimising employee parking, in a move the partners say will help employers to quickly reduce the number of employees driving to work in the peak, decreasing their carbon footprint and reducing the number of parking spaces required.

Wayleadr says its solution ensures that when employees do need to travel to the office, they can easily book spaces in advance or check for free spaces in real time, removing administrative headaches for office site staff, reducing unnecessary journeys and driving down emissions. The companies said that the combination of Kura and Wayleadr’s smart technology platforms will deliver an end to end solution to the commuter problem with benefits that are far-reaching for all stakeholders including cost savings for the employer; time savings and improved health and well-being for the employees; and less congested roads for the local community.

Godfrey Ryan, CEO of Kura, said: “Kura is excited to work with Wayleadr as we share a common vision for how employees will travel sustainably to their workplace. We already supply many leading UK companies with smart home to work shuttle buses that reduce business miles and are 100% carbon neutral. This partnership with Wayleadr is both smart and sustainable and reinforces commuting via shared transport as the progressive choice for both employer and employee.”

Val Cassidy, Head of Partnerships and Integrations at Wayleadr added: “We’re excited to partner with Kura to further bridge the last mile transit gap and make the planet a better place at the same time. We want to make it less stressful for employees to get to work, save them time and also help them reduce their carbon footprint. Kura shares this mindset so this partnership made a lot of sense.”
