Fast forward two years since Metropia’s launch in May 2015, and Austin's Metropia app users have saved more than 650,000 lbs of CO2 and more than 20,000 hours on their commutes (if you add these hours up, that’s more than 2 years of time saved and counting!). Not only are Metropians tackling traffic but also giving back to our communities, choosing to donate their earned points to plant more than 7,000 trees and donate warm meals to the local non-profit, Meals on Wheels and More.
Metropia app users continue to help drive a #betteratx. And by helping improve the flow of traffic in our city, the growing Metropia community is helping to create a more vibrant economy, reduce commuter stress, improve air quality, and enhance the overall quality of life in Austin. And after only two years, we’re already seeing that Metropians are helping our city be a better place to live.
The future looks bright indeed. Take a look at what’s coming up next for Metropia.
Metropia’s mission is to make cities better places to live. Metropia offers commuters departure times, routes, and modes that help reduce traffic congestion. The app offers a single platform for government agencies, employers, non-profits, merchants, and Central Texans to come together and take part in helping tackle Austin’s traffic.
Don't forget to join the celebration! We've got a week of prizes, treats, and more lined up!
