Metropia to Announce Full App Platform during Monday’s Mobility Symposium

Metropia, a transportation technology company, will announce at its Mobility Symposium on Monday, October 24, 2016, that the full Metropia platform, including the consumer-facing Metropia mobile app, is now available in the Paso del Norte Region.

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.

After nine months of testing, Metropia’s mobile app is ready to put the power of those partnerships in the hands of users by rewarding them for making better commuting decisions.

Regional transportation leaders will celebrate the launch of Metropia with a Mobility Symposium and Information Fair on Monday, October 24, 2016.
