Commuting to and from Arizona offices is no easy task! The freeways are congested, drivers are distracted, public transportation can be confusing, and it takes what seems like a century just to get to work. Having a long daily commute to your Arizona commercial office is no fun and takes hours out of your day, but there are a few ways to make the journey shorter, more efficient, and perhaps, more enjoyable. These four mobile apps are designed specifically for people with tricky commutes.
In Arizona, public transport may not be the ideal way to commute between home and the office, but the bus and light rail don’t have to be a nightmare. If you rely on public transportation to get to and from work, HopStop is right up your ally. The app shows you when to catch the bus or light rail, how long the commute will take, how many carbon emissions were saved, and which route is the most efficient to get you to your destination. Plus, if you walk or bike to work, HopStop can determine that route and the amount of calories burnt!
Gas is never cheap! Even with Arizona’s lower gasoline taxes, it is still costly to fuel up your car when you have a lengthy commute, which many Arizonians do. GasBuddy helps you find the cheapest option to refill your tank by using your location to determine which stations near you are the cheapest. Better yet, the app also allows the user to report gas prices and earn gas points for doing so.
Install the Waze app and make it a part of your daily commute. The app provides real-time routing and voice navigation based on traffic surrounding your area. Like with GasBuddy, you can earn points by reporting traffic jams, accidents, road blockades, etc. You can also add friends by syncing your phone’s contacts to view your friends’ locations when you are traveling to the same destination. Interactive and effective, join the Waze team to work toward outsmarting traffic together to make your commute that much better.
A psychic traffic app? Almost. Daily Commute uses data from your commutes over time to piece together the fastest, most efficient route to your Arizona commercial office. To truly make the app useful, you must enter a target arrival time whenever you head to the office. Over time, the app will “get smarter” and be able to predict the most economical route for you.
