Ever wish you could get paid extra for that time you’re stuck in traffic on 275? Well, now ya can. There’s a study being done at USF on how to reduce traffic congestion. Channel 8 says The Center for Urban Transportation Research is looking for I-275 drivers to help in a study.
Here’s how it works. You’ll be told to download an app called RideFlag. The app can tell how many are in a car. It rewards carpoolers. Those who take part in the study will get a $10 Amazon gift card to start, according to the story. When they take a ride on 275 from Bearss to Westshore, it’ll begin their participation. Then for every additional ride you take, you get another $5 card – until you reach $190.
