Multi-modal app provides ‘fastest, cheapest or best’ route

A multi-modal transportation app for the Canadian city of Vancouver, which has been in beta development since March, has launched in the App store. It aims to radically change urban mobility, ease congestion and reduce greenhouse gases from transportation.

Cowlines claims the app has been consistently beating Google Maps when it comes to car-free travel time around Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, regularly delivering up to 40 per cent faster trips around the Lower Mainland.

By providing three route options: fastest, cheapest, best, it gives commuters more choice and allows people to track verifiable CO2 emissions so they can choose the most environmentally friendly transportation options.
