Cowlines Extends Its Footprint to Launch in over Sixty North American Cities

First multimodal trip planning app deployed across the continent
capable of reducing carbon emissions and measuring the modal shift

  • Solves complex commutes by offering customized routes that
    aggregates and combines any transportation option to move around the
  • Helps fight climate change by enabling a modal shift away from cars
    and calculates the savings of carbon emissions for commuters and
  • Delivers up to 50% faster routes for non-car trips compared to
    other leading apps while offering users customized routes

VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cowlines, a mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) app, is pleased to announce it
is now available for iOS download to 190 million people across 62 cities
in the United States and in Canada including the metro regions of
Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, San
Diego, Toronto, NYC and others. After a proven pilot in the city of
Vancouver this past March, Cowlines has now unveiled its app across
North America in one of the largest and most ambitious app roll-outs in
recent years.

Cowlines users use the free app to plan their commutes by choosing a
route based on what matters most to them. Users can plan their trip by
selecting the fastest, cheapest or greenest route to take, combining any
form of transportation available. Users can know the total cost of a
trip, how long it takes them to get there and calculate their carbon
footprint. Cowlines not only aggregates all transport options available
but quantifies the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based on the route,
using a leading proprietary methodology based on international standards
and best practices. Cowlines is moving the needle forward by enabling
modal shift for cleaner and more sustainable forms of transport in
cities by integrating public transit, rideshare, bike share, car share
and taxis into one personalized route.

Jonathan Whitworth, Co-owner and Chief Strategy Officer of Greenlines
Technology states, “Today’s urban mobility landscape is extremely
complex with a gamut of mobility options that did not exist a decade
ago. Traffic congestion is the leading source of GHG emissions in
cities, and integrated mobility is the future of clean and efficient
transportation. We are proud to deliver the first app that intuitively
combines any form of transport across cities in the US and Canada to
help residents and visitors navigate the urban landscape without relying
on private cars, while reducing carbon emissions for each trip.”

By 2030, it is expected 68% of populations worldwide are projected to
live in urban centres (United Nations, Department of Economic and Social
Affairs), increasing the challenges of congestion and urban density and
climate change concerns. 23% of energy-related GHG emissions come from
transportation (International Energy Agency) and if 1% of the population
in each city uses Cowlines to regularly commute to work, 1.5 million
tonnes of CO2 could be saved each year, an environmental impact that is
the equivalent of taking 320,000 cars off the road.

“We are seeing innovative mobility-as-a-service technologies transform
the way people approach mobility and how they move around the cities.
Cowlines has worked to bring a fresh new way to not only deal with
making transportation more seamless but aim to make a direct impact on
social and environmental benefits with their solution,” comments Greg
Moore, former Chair of Metro Vancouver. “Municipal governments are
aligning their policies towards the common goal of increasing the
livability of city life and fighting climate change. I look forward to
witnessing the positive impact Cowlines will have driving accountability
to the choices we make in transportation options and the benefits of
multimodal mobility on the future of our cities.”

Cowlines offers a highly scalable and low cost solution that puts the
environment and the people first while fighting climate change. As part
of their North American launch, Cowlines works with hundreds of transit
agencies and private providers to accelerate a smart future for cities.
