Managing the details of your jaunt around LA is where your day can unravel. Is your car fueled and ready to go? Is your ride clean and detailed? How about renting the perfect vehicle, parking and valet services, as-needed roadside assistance, mobile mechanic services, and ensuring that your children are safely buckled in?

 

Let’s face it, your day is often about drudgery and the time and effort you spend on getting around LA rather than being about where you want or need to be. And driving in LA can be stressful.

 

In fact, Los Angeles drivers spend more time in traffic than any other city in the world according to INRIX, a transportation analytics firm. The 2017 INRIX Global Traffic Scorecard analyzed the impact of traffic across 1,064 cities in 38 countries and Los Angeles drivers came in first with 104 hours of sitting in rush-hour traffic.

 

We’ve got 9 of the best smartphone car apps that make driving in the greater Los Angeles area more convenient, flexible, and an efficient use of your valuable time and effort while helping you get where you want to go.Click To Tweet

   

As a bonus, some of the founders of these apps have supplied us with an exclusive promo code for you to use.

 

Purple

 

Purple offers refueling services in the Los Angeles area from 7am-10pm. Wherever you are, with fee-based windows of one, three, or five hours, Purple will deliver and fill your tank with “top tier 87-91 unleaded fuel.”

 

Why spend precious time sitting in line at the pump? Don’t you have somewhere you’d rather be? Let Purple save you precious time and the hassle of doing it yourself with a full-service fill-up while you’re at work or home. Quickly becoming a favored App in LA, great service and competitive gas prices have made Purple a huge success.

 

Reasonable fees for the time window of your choice are added to comparable gas prices in the area. Fees range from $3.99-$9.99. The mobile app allows easy ordering, updates on progress, and notifies you when they’re done with your car. Don’t forget to ask for the tire pressure check!

Turo

 

What has your car done for you lately?

 

There are two sides to this app. With Turo, you can earn extra income by renting your personal vehicle or you can find the perfect vehicle to rent.

You approve every booking, meet your renters, complete an inspection, and turn over the keys. Your car will be returned to you re-fueled and ready for your next booking.

 

2- Sign up with Facebook or Google and skip the long lines at the rental agency. Find the exact vehicle you want to rent for your next adventure. There are no additional costs or hidden fees. Pick a vehicle, book with the owner thru Turo, and the owner will meet you, do a visual inspection of the vehicle with you, check your driver’s license, confirm the fuel level, and the keys are handed over. Each rental comes with a $1 million dollar liability insurance policy and 24 roadside assistance.

Why is LA a good market for your app?

 

Because LA is a densely populated city with terrible public transportation options, so everyone drives. There’s also the lazy factor…everyone loves convenience here and are willing to pay a premium for it.

Honk

 

This “pay-as-you-need” roadside service app is the answer to your emergency roadside assistance needs.

 

If you’ve ever had a flat tire, have been locked out of your car, needed a jump (your car battery), ran out of gas, or needed a tow, you know what a godsend it can be to have roadside assistance coverage.

 

The Honk app allows you to use your smartphone to order roadside assistance 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, and with wait times as little as 15-30 minutes. Honk service providers will get your car back on the road and ready to go in no time at all.

 

Services are completely cashless and there are no membership fees; strictly pay-as-you-need. Imagine quality, responsive, roadside emergency assistance without throwing your money away on long-term membership fees. What took so long?

 

Why is LA a good market for your app?

 

Los Angeles traffic is brutal and many of us have waited 30 minutes in traffic only to drive 5 miles. When you set out to conquer a busy day and then have an unplanned roadside incident, it is critical to find a nearby towing company who is also available. HONK can ping the real time location of multiple providers near you, calculate their ETA with traffic, and handle all payment transactions so no cash is needed. HONK gives you peace of mind in difficult situations.

 

Tot Squad

 

Driving in LA with children screams “safety first,” and of course, “looking good!”

Why should your tots ride be any different than yours? Check out the Tot Squad’s web app to make arrangements to drop off your baby gear or to request their mobile services. Keep in mind that the Tot Squad also sells gift cards which can be a great gift for parents to be.

Pavemint

 

Pavemint is more than an app, it’s a community. This exceptional concept app links residents who have available parking spaces to users who are searching for a safe and convenient place to park.

 

Why spend valuable time cruising the streets as you look for that perfect parking space?

 

Pavemint allows users to reserve parking spaces in advance for those days when they want the ease and convenience of a dedicated parking space.

 

The app also functions as a trip planner in terms of providing walk-time estimates from available parking spaces to your destination of choice. Read reviews and compare prices in the app to ensure that you’re satisfied with your choice ahead of time. Parking in LA has never been easier!

 

Why is LA a good market for your app?

 

Los Angeles is a great market for Pavemint because it’s notoriously difficult to find parking. In addition, because LA’s public transit doesn’t compare to other major cities, almost everyone uses a car to get around. While ridesharing services provide a great alternative for residents when traveling locally, they can also be expensive, between surges and how sprawled out our city is. That’s where Pavemint comes in!

Timothy Papandreou, Chief Innovation Officer, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, with Philippe Crist, Transport Analyst, ITF; and Scott Sedlik, General Manager, Europe, Middle East and Africa, INRIX, Inc., at the Plenary: "The power of choice: How is travel demand shaping cities?" taking place during the International Transport Forum’s 2016 Summit on “Green and Inclusive Transport” in Leipzig, Germany on 20 May 2016.

Die »Traffic Scorecard« [1] zeigt einen Anstieg der Verkehrsstaus für Stuttgart im Jahr 2015 um 14 Prozent – den höchsten Anstieg Europas; damit klettert Stuttgart auf Platz zwei in der Liste der staureichsten Städte Europas.

Stuttgart überholt Köln als verkehrsreichste Stadt Deutschlands; in Stuttgart standen Fahrer im letzten Jahr stolze 73 Stunden im Stau, ein Anstieg von 8,5 Stunden im Vergleich zu 2014.

Vier deutsche Städte rangieren in den Top 10 der verkehrsreichsten Städte in Europa.

Im dritten Jahr in Folge rangiert Deutschland im Jahr 2015 auf Platz drei der verkehrsreichsten Länder Europas, Fahrer stehen hierzulande 38 Stunden im Stau.

Der Mittlere Ring (B2R) in München bleibt weiterhin die verkehrsreichste Straße Deutschlands, auf der Fahrer durchschnittlich 93 Stunden im Stau stecken.

 

INRIX hat seine Traffic Scorecard [1] für 2015 veröffentlicht. Der Vergleichsindex misst Mobilitätsfortschritte in Städten und setzt Maßstäbe für Regierungen und Städte in Europa und den Vereinigten Staaten.

 

Der Report zeigt, dass von den 96 untersuchten europäischen Städten und ihren Einzugsgebieten Stuttgart mit einem Plus von 14 Prozent den stärksten Anstieg an Verkehrsstaus zu verzeichnen hatte. Fahrer in Stuttgart verbrachten im letzten Jahr durchschnittlich 73 Stunden im Stau, ein Anstieg von 8,5 Stunden im Vergleich zu 2014. Dadurch kletterte Stuttgart in der Liste der staureichsten Städte Europas vom fünften auf den zweiten Platz und überholte Köln als Deutschlands verkehrsreichste Stadt. 2014 führte Köln die Liste an, mit Stuttgart auf Platz zwei.

 

Stuttgart ist Opfer seines eigenen Erfolgs

 

Der Anstieg des Staulevels in Stuttgart geht unter anderem zurück auf das Sinken der Benzinpreise[i], ein Rekordhoch bei der Zahl der Fahrzeug-Neuzulassungen[ii], fortschreitendes Bevölkerungswachstum[iii] und den Status als wichtiger Wirtschaftsstandort[iv] mit Firmen wie der Daimler AG, Porsche AG und Bosch, die alle ihren Hauptsitz in der Stuttgarter Metropolregion haben. Zusätzlich beeinflusst der Tourismus das Verkehrslevel: Baden-Württemberg ist eine der beliebtesten Ferienregionen Deutschlands.

 

Die deutsche Wirtschaft wuchs, gemessen am Bruttoinlandsprodukt, im Jahr 2015 um 1,7 Prozent[v] und erreichte somit den höchsten Stand seit 2013. Deutschlands Arbeitslosenquote sank im letzten Jahr auf 4,4 Prozent[vi], die niedrigste Quote seit 35 Jahren. Diese Faktoren beflügeln nicht nur die Verbraucherausgaben[vii], sondern sie beleben deutschlandweit auch eine Vielzahl von Bauvorhaben. In Kombination mit den niedrigeren Benzinpreisen haben sie einen negativen Einfluss auf den Staulevel.

 

»Stuttgart ist Opfer seines eigenen Erfolgs, mit einem soliden Arbeitsmarkt und einer wachsenden Wirtschaft, die mehr Autopendler, mehr Investitionen und somit folglich mehr Verkehr anzieht«, sagt Bryan Mistele, Präsident und CEO von INRIX. »Das stetige Wachstum der deutschen Wirtschaft hatte einen Anstieg der Verbraucherausgaben zur Folge, was in Verbindung mit dem Rückgang der Spritkosten auch zu mehr Straßenverkehr führte. So stiegen die Verkehrsstaus in Stuttgart und anderen deutschen Städten deutlich an.«

    

Im Durchschnitt 38 Stunden im Stau

 

Deutschlandweit verschwendeten Fahrer 2015 im Durchschnitt 38 Stunden im Stau, eine Stunde weniger als im Vorjahr. Vier deutsche Städte (Stuttgart, Köln, Karlsruhe und Düsseldorf) rangieren unter den Top 10 der verkehrsreichsten Städte Europas. Damit befindet sich Deutschland im dritten Jahr in Folge unter den drei verkehrsreichsten europäischen Ländern. London bleibt die europäische Stau-Hauptstadt, die Autofahrer stehen dort durchschnittlich über 100 Stunden im Stau. Das staureichste Land Europas ist nach wie vor Belgien, dort verbringen Autofahrer durchschnittlich 44 Stunden im Stau.

 

Der Verkehr stieg 2015 in 50 Prozent der untersuchten deutschen Städte beziehungsweise in 11 der 22 deutschen Metropolen. Den größten Anstieg hatten Stuttgart (+14 %) und München (+10 %) zu verbuchen, hier steckten Fahrer zusätzlich 4,5 Stunden untätig im Stau. Auch Berlin (+9 %) und Köln (+9 %) waren von einem starken Anstieg des Verkehrs betroffen. Im Gegensatz dazu kam es in Karlsruhe, seit drei Jahren die Nummer drei der verkehrsreichsten Städte Deutschlands, 2015 zu einem Rückgang der Verkehrsverspätungen um 14 Prozent beziehungsweise um 9 Stunden. In Frankfurt (-13,5 %) sowie im Ruhrgebiet (-17 %) ging der Verkehr ebenfalls zurück.

 

»Während die Verbesserungen der Infrastruktur auf Autobahnen langsam Früchte tragen, steigt der Verkehrsstau in Deutschlands wichtigen Metropolen weiter an«, sagte Prof. Dr. Michael Schreckenberg, Verkehrsexperte an der Universität Duisburg-Essen. »Das betrifft viele Städte, weil diese ihre Straßenkapazität kaum erhöhen können, und besonders vom Auto dominierte Metropolen wie Stuttgart, wo das Wachstum des Verkehrs das Ergebnis eines soliden Arbeitsmarktes, niedriger Spritpreise und der hohen Zahl von Auto-Pendlern ist. Das bringt die Infrastruktur an ihre natürlichen Grenzen.«

Deutschlands verkehrsreichste Straßen

 

INRIX hat auch die verkehrsreichsten Straßen Deutschlands und die ungünstigsten Fahrtzeiten identifiziert. Straßen in Stuttgart, Köln, Wuppertal und dem Ruhrgebiet erreichten allesamt eine Position unter den Top 10. Dennoch war die verkehrsreichste Straße Deutschlands der 28 Kilometer lange Münchner Mittlere Ring (B2R): Hier gab es 2015 Verzögerungen von durchschnittlich 93 Stunden – 43 Stunden mehr als die zweitverkehrsreichste Straße, die A1 von der Leverkusener Brücke nach Leverkusen, die die Fahrer letztes Jahr 50 Stunden an Stauzeit kostete.

Deutschland vs. Europa: Wie schneiden wir ab?

 

Von den 13 analysierten europäischen Ländern verzeichneten im Jahr 2015 70 Prozent einen Rückgang an Staus. Das kann auf die stagnierende europäische Wirtschaft zurückgeführt werden, mit einem durchschnittlichen Wachstum des Bruttoinlandsprodukts von lediglich 0,3 Prozent in der zweiten Jahreshälfte des vergangenen Jahres[viii], weniger als der Vor-Krisen-Wert aus dem Jahr 2008. Belgien führt die Liste an, hier verbrachten Fahrer durchschnittlich 44 Stunden in Verkehrsstaus, gefolgt von den Niederlanden (39 Stunden), Deutschland (38) und Luxemburg (34). Die Schweiz stieg um einen Platz von sechs auf fünf und rutscht so in die Top 5 des Jahres 2015.

Seattle is a world-class city when it comes to traffic congestion. According to a 2016 study by INRIX, which compared more than 1,000 cities in 38 countries and five continents, Seattle ranked 23rd for the amount of time drivers are bogged down in the flow of traffic. Assigning traffic cops to busy intersections during peak times (such as 7:30 a.m. on Monday, April 3, 2017) could improve the situation, assuming they actually engage in directing traffic.

Or so the geeks say. Sound Transit CEO Peter Rogoff and other transit experts in the Puget Sound are highly skeptical automated transportation can replace paratransit as somebody needs to attend to the passenger.
