RouteHero is a mobile platform and app that provides smart, personalized traffic and transit alerts for commuters in metropolitan areas (starting with Washington DC).
Users can enter in their normal routes via driving, metro, or bus, and what time they are travelling. RouteHero will then send alerts via text or email to the user before they get out the door, warning them of any delays or congestion.
RouteHero currently has an Android mobile app, and will soon be coming to iOS. Users are able to get public transit alerts for free by email, and can upgrade to recieve traffic alerts, as well as alerts via text.
