In the News relaunches, improves experience

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

The CAPCOG Regional Planning and Services Division upgraded the Commute Solutions program by updating the commute planning and tracking tool and website, The update makes it easier for residents to determine sustainable traveling options in an effort to lower the usage of single-occupancy vehicles leading to lower roadway congestion and improved air quality.

Changes to the website modernized its appearance while making it for easier for residents to plan and track their commutes. It now allows non-registered users to map an upcoming trip to see possible routes, including carpool, transit, biking, and walking options, while estimating the trip’s travel time, pollution contribution and cost. The tool is also available as an app for Android and Apple devices.

Registered users, can still find carpool partners and track the benefits of their more sustainable commutes over time. Other new features from the upgrade include:

  • New Program/Incentives for users
  • Community Events listings
  • Integrations with Waze, Waze Carpool, and Strava
  • Passive tracking through the mobile app users should have received an email asking them to transfer their previous account to the new platform. If they did not previously create an account, now is a great time to sign up.
