In terms of transport, non-motorized travel (or active mobility) is human powered and includes walking, cycling, scooters … Low impact transport is transport that whether collective or individual, contributes to a reduction in CO2 emissions (electric bicycles, carpooling, hybrid transport, etc.). These are all new alternatives to the private car and to group transport (traditional coaches).
In congested traffic areas, these new modes of transport are often faster. They are also cleaner, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help to make business events more environmentally friendly.
We have identified some alternative and original solutions for your future trips:
The Treep offers innovative ‘Mobility Planner’ services to make business travel better for society (more efficient, economical, easy to use, etc.) and for the planet (more environmentally friendly). The agency offers a multimodal application software (integration of trains, bicycles, taxis ... to establish the ‘best’ route) and CSR Dashboard offers to monitor travel and the impact on the planet.
For short distances, walking is the best means of travel. In Paris, many points of interest and business centres are within walking distance.

For over a century, the Paris metro has played a central role in the daily lives of people in the Ile-de-France (Paris region). Paris is a city with a comprehensive public transport network (bus, metro, RER, transilien) enabling everyone to get around easily and quickly.
In recent years, Paris has become an important cycle city with 1,000 kms of bike lanes available and bicycle journeys, which now account for 7% of all journeys. Take advantage of this opportunity and think of the bike as a mode of transport for getting from one point to another or as a companion for a guided tour.
