Pretoria, South Africa, February 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Menlyn Maine has partnered with FindaLift, South Africa’s first provider of specialised journey-matching network solutions and services, to implement the "Menlyn Maine FindaLift Private Group" that will encourage and enable more sustainable business travel.
This private and secure system will instantly match employees at Menlyn Maine on similar routes so they can decide to make secure contact and arrange to share the journey. This will help them save money, be nicer to earth, travel better, reduce congestion and reduce pressure on parking facilities. Furthermore the Menlyn Maine FindaLift Private Group will enable park management to keep track of estimated environmental, monetary and distance savings that occurred from sharing journeys by members.
About Menlyn Maine
The Menlyn Maine precinct, Africa’s first Green City, represents the realisation of a vision to transform what was previously a low-density residential area into a multi-functional and environmentally- friendly green complex. Its first corporate tenants, Nedbank and SAGEVip, have already moved its regional head offices to the precinct.
Since 2010, FindaLift has run a national initiative, called Findalift.co.za, that offers a journey-matching platform absolutely free to the public of South Africa and now has over 6400 active members. To keep the service free for members, FindaLift works with organisations, universities, business parks and other defined communities to implement private ridesharing programmes, building a national network to make ridesharing a viable option for many.
