BMW Group’s mobility services company, ReachNow, has teamed with Intel to bring its free-floating car sharing service to four Intel campuses in Hillsboro, Oregon. This partnership enables nearly 20,000 Intel team members to enjoy more flexibility in commuting and provides dedicated parking spaces near the entrances of each campus building.
“Intel is committed to ensuring employees, customers, and suppliers have safe and reliable transportation options. We encourage a number of alternatives for our employees including biking, walking, carpool and public transit with access to last mile options. We are excited to now offer ReachNow and hope this new venture will inspire others to follow suit,” said Neil Tunmore, Intel Corporate Vice President and Director of Corporate Services.
ReachNow originated in Seattle, Washington, and is the first car sharing and mobility service to reach the western suburbs of Portland. Last year, it expanded to Orenco Station in Hillsboro and the Beaverton campus of Tektronix. Rates are available by the minute, hour or day, and parking is available anywhere within the coverage area.
“Portland was one of the first cities in America to embrace car sharing, but large suburban business campuses are often still relatively limited in mobility options,” said Steve Banfield, CEO of ReachNow. “Intel has shown a strong commitment to providing employees and others on their campuses with sustainable, alternative transportation options. We believe that giving Intel employees and suburban residents more options for getting to the places they need to go will reduce traffic congestion.”
