Remember that feeling you got the first time you rode a bike? Fast, fun, freeing – a feeling you could only experience on a self-propelled vehicle.
It’s feeling independence from electronics, work, stress and, in some cases, other people. It’s a calmness in knowing the only limit is how far we want to ride that day.
As part of an effort to become more environmentally sustainable, Intuit has created a pilot program that provides bikes as a transportation option for employees.
We recently talked with Lance Bell, who heads up the program at our Intuit Mountain View campus. Lance shared thoughts on what it takes to set up a program that might one day support more than 1,500 people here in Mountain View.
It may not get employees away from work, but it makes getting around work a whole lot more fun.
