The Broward MPO announced today that it is supporting the launch of Metropia’s free multi-modal navigation app--GoEzy--which will be used to support the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Smartphone Travel Incentive Study in Broward County. The GoEzy app helps drivers avoid traffic and spend less time behind the wheel, and as part of the study, Broward County drivers could be offered valuable rewards for trying out GoEzy’s suggestions to improve their commute over the next several weeks.
In addition to enjoying GoEzy’s innovative features, thousands of Broward County drivers will receive special offers to make changes to their routine travel, such as leaving a little earlier for a trip than normal, carpooling or biking to work, or trying out a convenient route to school. Commuters can earn rewards like gift cards from Visa, Amazon, Starbucks, and more for giving those suggestions a try.
As drivers use the GoEzy app, the Smartphone Travel Incentive study will develop a deeper understanding of traveler behavior, how incentives influence travel choices, and how these findings can help shape transportation policy in the future.
GoEzy will continue to improve daily drives long after the study is over, but to potentially join the thousands of Broward County drivers earning rewards while improving their commute, here’s what to do:
Download the free GoEzy app from the Apple App Store or Google Play
- Start using the GoEzy app for navigation when traveling around town
- Within 1-2 weeks, the app will start presenting you with personalized suggestions (and possibly rewards!) for upcoming trips
