      Overcoming the First Mile, Last Mile in DC

      November 07, 2018

      FMLM may sound like a confusing medical term, but in the world of public transportation, it stands for “First Mile/Last Mile.” Getting to/from the primary mode of travel is a prevalent challenge that nearly all cities face while trying to plan for, and increase, the use of public transit. It can be a huge hurdle and is often what prevents people from using public transportation to begin with. First Mile, Last Mile refers to the commute distance from a person’s home (or starting point) to the transportation site and following the commute from said location to their final destination.

      Residential Walking Tour with Frequency Apartments

      October 30, 2018

      Of the many services offered by goDCgo, residential properties are fond of our residential walking tours. You may wonder: what is a residential walking tour? It's an experience for property managers, concierge, and residents to learn about all the alternative transportation options and amenities close to the property.   Frequency Apartments, a new complex near the Tenleytown Metro and a goDCgo Residential Ambassador, hosted a walking tour for residents and property management staff. This tour included a walk to the nearest Metro station and a discussion about the different fare pass options and hours of operation. Additionally, the group learned about apps like Transit and City Mapper to plan their trips in and around the District.  Residents also learned about Capital Bikeshare and how to use the app to check out a bike on the go. Participants enjoyed exploring all the amenities on-site as well, including the bike room, online resources, and telework space so they can skip the commute altogether. goDCgo hosts complimentary on-site events at any residential properties that are interested in helping residents with their commute options.
