Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
The toll-saving app, iDrive95 is now available in the Apple iTunes store for Miami and Broward drivers. The crowd-sharing app reports the cost of the current toll to fellow drivers before they hit the road. The price of a toll changes every 15 minutes, from 25 cents to $7.00. Fellow drivers help out by updating the price using the iDrive95 app.
"I drive the I-95 Express lane daily," says Rick Valdez. No one wants to be surprised by a $7.00 toll. But we're already on the road. Already right there. We all have to make a split second decision we don't want to make."
The iDrive95 app is easy to use. It's only two buttons - CONFIRM and UPDATE. Press CONFIRM if the price in the app already matches the current toll. The system updates to let your fellow drivers know that the price is still good. Press UPDATE to enter a new price.
"We all want to know the toll price before we hit the road," states Mr. Valdez. "I can check iDrive95 before I leave work. If the toll is over $5.00, maybe I'll stay an extra half hour for the price to drop. Or not. Now I have a choice."
An added benefit of using iDrive95 is keeping track of daily tolls. The monthly calculator shows daily spending. Record the amount you spent and what time of day. This function is especially useful for road warriors that need to keep a log of spending.
"iDrive95 was developed by Serdar Karatekin and I to help all drivers in South Florida," says Rick. "iDrive95 at it's best can reduce congestion on I-95 Express, reduce emissions from all the slow-moving cars, and reduce one more stress from the daily commute. The app helps everyone."
iDrive95 users can save hundreds of dollars. Over 30,000 driver per day use I-95 Express. Collectively, this adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars saved.
