MON, March 13 - Visit with Metropia at SXSW Trade Show
Plus, while Metropia’s monitoring traffic for you, the Metropia El Paso team will be exhibiting their work at the SXSW Trade Show. Be sure to swing by and say hello. It’s a great opportunity to hear from the team on how El Paso Metropians, much like Austin Metropians, are planning ahead, saving time, steering clear of traffic and earning rewards—while helping reduce traffic congestion in their community. (Rumor has it, they have some freebies on hand to give away. Never a bad thing.)
