                       FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Vastly increases available features. Dads and Grads will appreciate the “give as gift” feature.

Clever Commute, the leading information service for suburban train commuters, has released version 2.0 of its premium service. The Inside Track is a suite of tools used by riders on LIRR, Metro North and NJ Transit.

The features vary by transit provider, but all share a theme of using technology and data to reduce stress and empower the commuter. The Inside Track builds on the viral success of the firm’s flagship e-mail based crowdsourced commuter alerting service. However, it also leverages new data sources and direct integration with the transit providers. New or improved features include:

  • Analytics & models to predict track numbers (crucial for riders at NY’s Penn Station)

  • Geo-location – See a real-time map of your train’s location

  • Algorithms which constantly monitor for signs of trouble…and automatically alert impacted commuters

  • Improved/automated cross-line (and cross-carrier) sharing of user-generated information

  • Strategic, proactive guidance regarding anything which impacts the commute
    (e.g., holiday get-away days, schedule changes, events/disruptions at/near the terminals)

  • Delivery via e-mail, Twitter, text message or straight to the commuter’s mobile device

  • New “user profile” feature allows time-of-day and day-of-week control over alerts. Even “snooze” alerts.

With this new version comes the ability to give The Inside Track as a gift. This is perfect for Father’s Day, graduation or any other occasion to celebrate the commuter.

Joshua Crandall, the Founder and CEO of Clever Commute said “The riders have wonderfully diverse commuting strategies and tastes. With this release, The Inside Track literally has something for everyone. It’s a game-changer for suburban commuters.”
