Looking for new ways to engage potential users by showing them their commute options?
If you have a list of users with home and work email addresses or an application that has their addresses, you can use your RideAmigos platform and unique URLs to link those users to custom-generated trip plans. Here’s how:
We will be using an example of someone going from Denver’s County Courthouse (1437 Bannock St, Denver, CO 80202) to the Coors Field (2001 Blake St, Denver, CO 80205) for a baseball game.
Base URL: https://mywaytogo.org/#/dashboard/plan/
then you add the addresses as appropriate, beginning with the From:
1437 Bannock St, Denver, CO 80202
Then add a /
Then add the To address:
2001 Blake St, Denver, CO 80205
Then add another /
The final URL should look like this:
https://mywaytogo.org/#/dashboard/plan/1437 Bannock St, Denver, CO 80202/2001 Blake St, Denver, CO 80205/
Then the user can just go to this URL and get all of their appropriate travel plans. This is confirmed to work in Chrome, Firefox, Safari 7, IE10, and IE11 (aka our actual supported browsers).
Also, if you would like to add a specific date or time to search, you would add it after that URL with ?date=2014-09-29&time=01:45 PM
So the final search URL would be:
1. Base link in column A
2. From Address in column B
3. “/” in Column C
4. To address in Column D
5. “/” in Column E
Copy and Paste a single row from columns 1-5 and paste in your browser to see the result.
Use a mail merge feature to send these out en masse.
If you have access to this user and address information in an existing application that can insert data into pre-formed URLs you can use your application to create and distribute URLs to users via your application.
