Metropia Introduces Free Flow Fridays

If you’ve been thinking about trying out carpooling, there’s a good incentive to make it more appealing this month: Metropia is doubling points for drivers and riders who use its DUO carpooling app every Friday in January.

If everyone in the U.S. chose to carpool even one day a week, our road and highway traffic would be reduced by more than 20%. Choosing to carpool on Free Flow Fridays can help make that traffic reduction a reality in Austin, and earn you double the rewards while you share a ride.

Metropia is a transportation app that allows you to plan trips in advance to avoid traffic, save time and earn rewards like gift cards to your favorite stores and restaurants. Metropia partners with the Austin Transportation Department to reduce congestion and improve mobility by helping disseminate real-time information on traffic conditions to the general public.

Here’s how to use Metropia’s DUO: Once the driver and passengers get in the car together, drivers use Metropia to guide them to their destination, and passengers tap “Start My Trip” in DUO mode. Metropia’s app will sync your group as you drive, so you don’t have to search for profiles or exchange contact info to get started.
