  2. You read it right, no more expensive mobility solutions for SMEs. If we really want to make flexible mobility accessible to every company, things have to be different. Easier. A flexible mobility plan is not only for the big companies. SMEs also need access to the mobility ecosystem. From startups to bigger brothers, you don't pay a cent until your 251st employee on the platform.
