Orlando offering rewards for residents who use green transportation

The city of Orlando is trying to encourage commuters to ride greener and reduce the usage of single-occupancy cars. In a partnership with the Miles app, the city is offering rewards to Orlandoans who use transit, bike and walk.

The Miles app gamifies moving yourself around the city, logging each trip and mode of transportation used. As users accumulate miles, they’ll receive personalized rewards that are redeemable either online or at a nearby store. Users can choose from more than 200 brands that offer rewards. The city hopes to create custom challenges for commuters to receive city-specific awards.
