CommutePays keep track of miles and points accrued, and even rewards commuters for being stuck in traffic.
CommutePays users can, for example, redeem points accrued during commutes for food and prizes at restaurants, whose ad partners can brand CommutePays tiles within the app, and deliver customized messages, as well as deliver audio or video clips for bonus miles. Other concepts, including map placements and in-store prizes unlocked at specific locations, enhance same-store traffic for retailers in the CommutePays program.

“We view commuters as mobile warriors who are both a captive audience and a fiercely loyal audience, and CommutePays leverages these essential elements to create a true loyalty network for the commuter class,” said Shahir Ahmed, founder and CEO of CommutePays. “CommutePays is designed as a location-based live gamification engine, and together with our partners, we can reward consumers at a very high level with retailers whose message is tailored to the loyal mobile commuter.”
