Metropia Adds New Merchant to Traffic-Avoiding App

A growing number of local merchants are making it more rewarding to help reduce congestion during the daily commute by using Metropia’s mobile app.

Eloise, a European-style coffee shop and restaurant located at 255 Shadow Mountain Drive in West El Paso, is Metropia’s latest merchant partner in El Paso.

“Metropia is committed to finding innovative solutions to El Paso’s growing traffic troubles while improving the quality of life for El Pasoans,” said Tania Chozet, Metropia’s El Paso Community Manager. “Partnering with businesses like Eloise, Savage Goods and Proper Printshop allows us to showcase some of the entrepreneurs who are investing in our community while making it even more rewarding for commuters to avoid congestion.”

The list of businesses also includes Proper Printshop, a locally owned screen printing studio, and Savage Goods, a local purveyor of home baked goods.

By using the Metropia app to navigate around congestion and choose less congested travel times, commuters earn points which can be redeemed with those participating businesses.

As one of Metropia’s newest partners, the live video will focus on raising awareness of the new collaboration; showcase one of Eloise’s Meatless Monday offerings, and giving a behind-the-scenes look at cafe operations. You can watch the live broadcast and submit questions by liking Metropia El Paso on Facebook.

Metropia’s team of traffic engineers and regional experts monitor the latest traffic conditions and construction closures from their new offices at the Hub of Human Innovation in Downtown El Paso. Metropia collaborates with area transportation experts, regional planning agencies and community stakeholders to create meaningful change by serving as the only single-source platform to share data with our entire community.

Metropia officially launched in El Paso in October, following a nine month testing phase.  To date, thousands of El Paso’s commuters have saved nearly 2,000 hours of driving time and planted nearly 9,000 trees.

Metropia will be live on Facebook in the Eloise kitchen at 10am MST on Monday, April 10, 2017. Eloise is known for their high-quality, responsibly sourced coffee, gourmet fare, and vegan-friendly offerings.

The free Metropia app is available for download in the Apple Store and via Google Play.
