There are plenty of apps and activity trackers that can track your driving, but now there’s one that will actually pay you for the miles you log while driving and not texting.
OnMyWay, which is based in Woodland Hills, CA, awards its users with cash — three cents for every mile you drive while not texting and driving. Save up enough money and you can exchange them for real-life products and services, like meals, gas or yoga classes. You also get paid as a passenger and can refer friends, will earn you 1 cent for every mile they dont text and drive.
“OnMyWay believes that by giving our users positive rewards, we can end this horrific epidemic that is the #1 cause of death for young people ages 17-25. This just makes sense for our users, our advertisers and our community… Everybody Wins!!!” Chloe Palmer, co-founder of OnMyWay.
David Rand has been using the app and says it’s a great motivator.
“For me, it’s just the reminder that nothing is so important that I need to put peoples lives in danger to check a message. I’m always thinking, ‘OK, so I actually like the peace of being in the car again and listening to may favorite tunes. Oh Yeah, How much did I make today?’” he said.
OnMyWay has created an economy that makes a difference and is profitable at the same time. A for-profit company with a cause.
The OnMyWay app is free to download and has no ads. It is currently available on both the App Store for Apple and Google Play for Android.
The company hopes to eventually make deals with insurance companies, health care providers, and employers who want to motivate their employees to drive safe and get paid..
As for David Rand, he’s still tracking his driving, collecting his OnMyWay Cash and trying to decide what to buy.
“I’m waiting, saving up for some good stuff,” he said.
