We’ve all heard that work will be different from now on: Flexible schedules; a blend of onsite and work-from-home (WFH) days per week; or, in some cases, total annihilation of the physical office. And as transportation professionals, we’re all anxious to know how this new work frontier will affect the commute.

As tech companies look to lure workers back to office, some are offering incentives to make the daily commute a little more tolerable. That sometimes means making it easier to commute by bicycle or, increasingly, e-bike—a mode of transport that exploded during the pandemic.

During the pandemic, people turned to bikes – for recreation, for health, and for a safe way to get around. Slow streets have transformed cities across the country. Municipalities are improving bike infrastructure and requiring more bike parking. Bike sales and service are the highest they’ve been in years and e-bike sales are off the charts. This will have a positive impact on your commercial and mixed-use developments – if you plan for it now.

Given the post-pandemic landscape, we strongly believe e-bikes will be an effective tool in fighting the back-to-work carmageddon. The reasons are multifold: E-bikes are naturally a socially-distanced mode; they’re on-demand and efficient — riders aren’t beholden to bus schedules and won’t get stuck in traffic; and they’re an equalizer — they work well for those who don’t think of themselves as cyclists; aren’t in tip-top physical shape; have a commute that’s longer than a few miles; or need to haul kiddos and groceries.

Since transportation is the largest source of carbon emissions in the US—most of which come from cars—the path to saving our home and (quite frankly) our lives is to change how we get around.

Some large companies have prioritized cycling and have dedicated on-site bike shops. While that’s amazing for employees who need a bike, a bike repair or help with their commute, most employers simply don’t have the physical space. But, no worries! There are creative ways to offer bike services without having a permanent real estate for it. Here are our favorites.
