RideAmigos’ Gaming, Rewards & Tracking Module effectively “gamifies” commuting with leader boards, shareable virtual badges (via Facebook and Twitter), prizes, and the rewarding of egos. Users can rapidly log trips, like biking, walking, transit, and ride sharing, and compare how they and their team, company, or neighborhood rank against one another at a glance and view trip history in their calendar. The platform promotes alternative transportation and commuter behavior change and produces detailed administrative reports (environmental, health, and dollar savings), along with intelligent mapping and visualization tools for administration. The program is ideal for Bike to Work Week; Rideshare Week; and general tracking, rewards, and compliance needs.
