Pitch: ReRouteMe’s free commute planning application helps users travel faster and smarter. Whether driving, busing, taking the taxi, cycling or walking, ReRouteMe uses local data and complex routing logic to avoid construction, accidents and traffic congestion. ReRouteMe also saves repeating routes and sends early notification of issues via email.
Why are we different: ReRouteMe can save repeating routes and send advanced notification of impact to those routes. The all-in-one package also offers gas prices, weather, trip statistics, and more.
Recent accomplishments: ReRouteMe was in beta mode since September 2012. The application formally launched on January 22, 2013.
