New app to help Alexandria drivers avoid traffic and earn rewards for improving their commute
ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Metropia, Inc. announced today that its free multi-modal navigation app--GoEzy--has officially launched in Alexandria which will be used to support the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Smartphone Travel Incentive Study. The GoEzy app helps drivers avoid traffic and spend less time behind the wheel, and as part of the study Alexandria drivers could be offered valuable rewards for trying out GoEzy's suggestions to improve their commute over the next several weeks.
In addition to enjoying GoEzy's innovative features, thousands of Alexandria drivers will receive special offers to make changes to their routine travel, such as leaving a little earlier for a trip than normal, carpooling or biking to work, or trying out a convenient bus route to school. Commuters can earn rewards like gift cards from Visa, Amazon, Starbucks and more for giving those suggestions a try.
As drivers use the GoEzy app, the Smartphone Travel Incentive study will develop a deeper understanding of traveler behavior, how incentives influence travel choices, and how these findings can help shape transportation policy in the future.
"Many drivers have simply given up and accepted traffic as part of their day," says Chris Colemon, leader of Smarphone's recruitment efforts, "but the truth is you can make small changes to avoid traffic and reduce that stress in your life. The GoEzy app will actually find and suggest those changes for you, and for a limited time, Alexandria drivers could be rewarded for trying them out."
GoEzy will continue to improve daily drives long after the study is over, but to potentially join the thousands of Alexandria drivers earning rewards while improving their commute, here's what to do:
