What does a travelling employee cost?
Do you know what each mode of transport costs on average per year? At almost €18,000, the leased car is easily the first most expensive means of transport for employers. Public transport comes second with € 3,280. The bicycle costs an employer on average € 555 per year.

What are popular schemes?
Organisations shape mobility in their own way. Nevertheless, there are a number of schemes that are popular. Employers in the Netherlands (in the period before the corona crisis) mainly opt for:
  • travel allowance (48%)
  • car scheme (17%)
  • public transport scheme (11%)
How do organisations encourage more conscious travel?
In the 2018 benchmark, 32% of organisations said they actively discourage car use. They often offer their employees a mobility card, to combine multiple modes of transport. For example, they can park their car at a P&R and then travel further by public transport or public transport bicycle. Which is faster, more efficient and often cheaper!
