Gett Webinar: How mobility operators meeting the challenges of COVID-19?
July 2nd, 5pm BST.
The COVID-19 crisis has had a global impact on mobility in the urban ecosystem — from public transport, through to micro mobility, to individual commuting by personal car. If you’re bussing, biking, or driving, every mode has seen a dramatic drop in use across towns and cities across the globe
When planning your post-Covid business travel plan, it’s crucial to feel safe and reassured. Whether you’re looking to hire a car, a black cab, a private taxi or an executive chauffeur, we have to ask ourselves, “What are these mobility operators doing to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19?”.
If mobility operators are going to successfully appeal to travellers’ safety needs while keeping the service economically priced, they’ll need to think outside the box. Corporate ground travel buyers also need to rethink the true value of providing a COVID-19 safe service in this unfamiliar landscape — Duty of Care must be responsibly balanced against the risk of choosing a “cheap” service, where corners may very well be cut.
This webinar offers insight into how these mobility operators are meeting the challenges of COVID-19, and what we as business travelers need to expect and understand.
- How to balance safety and savings with business ground travel usage
- How to convert short-term gains to long-term strategy
- How to develop a practical and safe riding format with my ground travel providers?
- What should my travellers expect when it comes to ground travel in the ‘New Normal’?

- Dr Michael S. Galvin – Mobility expert and Freelance Consultant
- Greg Mendoza – Regional Vice President – International Operations, Carey
