A company employee from Chongqing, Liu, commutes to work daily using stand up paddle board as his office is situated right across a river from his home. He started with alternative mode of transport since July last year and the journey takes only several minutes. He saves at least 90% of his time everyday.
He works for an insurance company that is located on the North side of the Yangtze River. The distance between between his home and the office is only 1km separated by the river. However, if he were to continue using public transport, he would need at least 1 hour to reach his office instead. The public transport service involves taking a bus from a pier located quite far from the office after a boat ride from his home. Clad in full suit, he now only needs 6 minutes to reach his office.
