COVID-19 puts a spotlight on companies who adapt quickly. Hytch Rewards has adapted and expanded the platform to offer greater value with the shelter in place reward and the commuter wellness pledge. The new features enable contact tracing and monitoring of commuter wellness to ensure the safety of us all.

Commuters are returning to single occupancy vehicles, further increasing congestion and carbon emissions. We have also learned that transportation is a barrier to employment so affordable and equitable access to public transit is crucial for many commuters. So how do we encourage commuters to start using public transit again?

Hytch Rewards, a technology solution that incentivizes smarter mobility decisions, today announced Shelter in Place, a new feature for its popular mobile app. Designed to encourage behavior that will limit the spread of COVID-19, Shelter in Place will pay daily cash rewards to sponsored U.S. residents who self-quarantine at home.
