Velocia is a rewards based platform for commuting. They partner with multiple mobility providers. Users can obtain rewards, called VELOs, by completing offers in the app and responsibly using transportation.
Complete information for Velocia has been entered into a spreadsheet, which may be viewed here. We have included a brief overview of the information contained in the spreadsheet below.
- Velocia just launched their app officially on December 5, 2019, and is still working out some kinks with their blockchain technology. After they perfect the technology and app, they plan to expand to other large cities in the US & Canada.
- Velocia offers rewards based on the customer commuting with their mobility partners.
- They focus on getting any person that uses public transit or ride sharing to install their app. They have integrated with the Miami-Dade Transit so the user may use the app to upload money to ride public transit.
- Velocia positions themselves as an answer to overcrowded, congested roadways, and a sustainable, environment- friendly alternative to private transportation.
- They use blockchain (Aion Network with AION Cryptocurrency) to acquire information from users. Users are offered incentives to share their information. This information, in turn, will be used to inform the company and their partners of things like where there should be more opportunities to rideshare, etc.
- Commuters can earn VELO Tokens as reward points. VELO tokens are earned by competing campaigns which are found in the app.
- VELO tokens are issued for using public or mobility services like the public transit, Bolt, Citi Bikes, Getaround, and SwiftSeat.
- The reward system is based on an open ecosystem and may be used with any of the partners. For example, if you earn points for using Lyft, they can be used to ride the metro.
- The tokens may only be used with their partners and redeemed for mobility services.
