Calling all carpoolers: An estimated 500,000 Houstonians lost their vehicles to Hurricane Harvey, and they NEED YOUR HELP. Our city’s recovery will heavily rely on the generosity of our fellow Houstonians to lend a helping hand, and one critical area where you can make a huge impact is in sharing a ride with someone in need.

Many of our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and classmates have been left stranded without access to reliable transportation, and now there’s an easy way to match with a carpool driver or passenger in your area.

Visit http://houston-riding.metropia.com to sign up as a passenger in need of a ride or a driver happy to share one, and enter your starting location, departure time, and destination into the site. Behind the scenes,...

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.
