Portland, Oregon – February 2, 2012 – CommutePays selects Portland for beta launch of its free application for iPhone and Android that allows commuters – those making a daily trek to and from the office – to earn CommuterCash, a valuable currency that can be redeemed, donated or gifted. During the promotional period (ending March 30th), CommuterCash may be used to unlock entries in the All Things Apple Promotion – winning up to $5,000 to purchase iPhones, iPads, Macintosh computers and more!

Commuters can now make the most of their drive time with traffic updates before they hit the road, while earning CommuterCash in transit. During the promotional period, CommuterCash can be redeemed for entries in the All Things Apple Promotion and in the future, may be gifted to local charity or redeemed for relevant local offers and promotions. Smartphone users can now be informed of major accidents or other road hazards proactively, tailored to their route, before they hit the road. By reducing congestion and improving the connection between merchant and consumer, CommutePays benefits both the commuter and local business. And the company’s patented, rewards-based system provides commuters plenty of ways to cash in.

“We chose the City of Portland as a test market to support the City’s commitment to sustainability and the environment, while offering a tangible way to give back to the commuter,” according to Shahir Ahmed, the company’s founder. “We’re excited to kick off this promotion in the Rose City on making the commute more rewarding, while providing a key resource to aid in reducing traffic congestion, improving commute times and facilitating emergency preparedness.”

Over two years in the making, the free consumer application represents a small, but important, part of the web-enabled platform the company has developed. By rewarding commuters with CommuterCash, the company has found a way to actively engage consumers, while providing timely updates in the event that there may have been an accident or delay along on their normal route, so they may adjust leave/departure times or consider alternate routing. And safety is a core element of the application. In addition to helping avoid potentially dangerous road conditions, the app recognizes when a commuter is in transit, and automatically defers any CommutePays push notifications to reduce or eliminate potential distractions.

“Portland enjoys a growing reputation as a living laboratory and test market for mobile applications,” said Patrick Quinton, Executive Director at the Portland Development Commission. “We are committed to our sustainable ethos, manageable commute and tangible benefits for our citizens.”

Beyond the opportunity to win during the promotional period, the free app provides route-specific, quick and easy access to traffic information to avoid unnecessary delays and dangerous conditions. In the future, CommuterCash may be gifted to a qualified not-for-profit, or used to unlock special offers and promotions on dining, entertainment, sporting events, auto service and repair, and other valuable products and services from local, Portland merchants. To get started, commuters simply download the free CommutePays app to their iPhone or Android. There is no purchase necessary, and setup is a snap. http://commutepays.com/
