Crowdsourced Data to Provide Real-time Venue Intelligence to Consumers

Buy Time LLC, the first company to create an exchange for consumers to buy and sell spots in lines, has launched the mobile app Lines … Why Wait?’. Buy Time LLC looks to utilize the on-demand economy to create efficiencies in how people wait in line. With the Lines app, consumers can sell their spot in line, buy a spot to skip the line or simply use the crowdsource data to avoid peak times at venues.

The Lines mobile app has two major functions. By leveraging the app, consumers can enter and view real-time waits at any venue. Secondly, the app has a patent-pending process that will allow consumers to exchange their spot in line for money, creating income for sellers and allowing buyers to pay to avoid waiting. Through these features, Buy Time LLC seeks to revolutionize line waiting in the constantly growing on-demand and sharing economies.

“With Americans spending 37 billion hours each year waiting in line, we saw a clear market opportunity to eliminate inefficiencies in the way people wait,” said Stefano Martini Co-founder and CEO, Buy Time LLC. “Our goal is to enable consumers to optimize their time, through the crowd and also by assigning a monetary value to that time.”

While some destinations might have local line waiting systems in place, the Lines universal platform establishes a simple and standard method across venues. Early adaptors of the app are encouraged to share the idea with friends, both by making Lines friends within the app or by word-of mouth. The more users on the platform, the more robust and valuable the data and exchange become. All users are also urged to provide feedback on the app and the idea to the Buy Time LLC team.
