App aims to reduce traffic congestion, increase ride sharing
“It makes sense if everyone shares a ride,” said Mark Cleveland, CEO and Co-Founder of Hytch. “That is the fastest way to a congestion-free lifestyle.”
The app helps you track rides you share with friends, neighbors and co-workers. It gives you credit for carpooling, ridesharing through Uber or Lyft, or using public transit. Money is rewarded for each qualified mile.
“We really are the solution to traffic problems,” said Cleveland. “We just have to be smarter on how we use our roads and highway systems.”
Cleveland said over 10,000 people in the Nashville area have downloaded the app, and the company has paid out $200,000 to people who have shared rides.
