Commutifi: The Standard in Commuter Scoring

A relative standard for individuals, companies, and cities to quantify their commute and measure the impact of investments

Transportation companies and municipal transportation agencies are investing billions and billions of dollars globally towards offering better mobility solutions, without having proper ways to quantify the problems and the impact of these solutions. Without this understanding, cities are having trouble driving adoption of new solutions, diminishing the final impact.

We are doing things differently, by creating a standardized way of measuring commuting routes using our Commuter Score. Like a FICA score does for credit and a SAT for education, this score allows individuals, companies and governments to have a relative baseline on which to understand the current transportation ecosystem and create targeted mobility solutions, incentives and subsidies that can drive positive changes on commuters. 

Commuters take a 3 minute survey that gathers data on their individual commute and behavioral profile. The score is calculated by comparing the current commuting habits and comparing their efficiency relative to the mobility options available to that specific commute. For example, if an individual lives on a bus line but drives a single occupancy vehicle to work, they will receive a lower score than someone who does not live on a bus line and drives.  Once the initial score is calculated, commuters are given personalized recommendations on how to improve their Score by mode shifting. Efficiency is the priority, which is why these recommendations are mode- and provider- agonistic. 

In the end, by focusing on the data, we empower individuals and organizations to create more efficient programs, multiplying the impact of new investments in the ecosystem.

Commutifi's Commuter Score is fundamentally a measurement of success. When a commuter mode shifts, Commutifi will automatically generate the financial, time, and carbon savings of each shift. This will allow the individual, the city, and the company to measure ROI on all transportation, sustainability, and wellness investments.

The city should create bicycle trails on the highway. Example: if they were to take 1 lane from I-95 north and 1 from south, they will be able to make a bicycle trail in the middle of the highway. By building 5 foot tall concrete barrier with plastic glass ontop of the barrier, protecting cyclists from motorists and any flying debris. And at each existing exit, making a stairway to allow cyclists to safely get On and Off under the bridge and back on the highway. The same can be done for all major highways. This will motivate people to cosider cycling as a much faster way of transportation at high peak hours. Especially from Golden Glades to Downtown Miami on I-95.

Building wider roads is clearly not the solution for our traffic congestion, it's only getting worst. Building safe bike trails will encourage people to commute on a bicycles. Having less cars on the road and less pollution. Distance is not the problem, safety is the biggest concern.

Yeah this would help to find better solutions in a large scale but for the future. Won't improve the urgency we have to move around Miami

Great idea but wouldn’t be better if it used information taken from GPS? It would use more accurate info than normal people

Hi Connor Martin 

Great execution here using multiple sets of data to gather insights on commuter behavior! Way to go meeting the proposal submission deadline. Good luck!
