About the Hytch partnership
City of Brentwood is a proud partner of Hytch Rewards, a free smartphone app for iPhone and Android that rewards individuals for carpooling or riding public transit. The app uses synchronized GPS technology to validate when two people are sharing a ride. Partners of the Hytch Rewards program, including City of Brentwood, make mile-by-mile cash rewards available for specific destinations.
More shared miles means fewer vehicles on the road, which means reduced traffic congestions, lessened parking demand, and improved air quality. Hytch Rewards also helps to build community by getting more friends, neighbors, family members, and co-workers to spend more time together while traveling. Stronger communities are safer communities. For all of these reasons, City of Brentwood is bringing additional rewards to the Hytch Rewards platform for their employees and staff.

Frequently Asked Questions

What challenge does City of Brentwood hope to overcome through this partnership?
We know that very few employees live in Brentwood. This means that the length and cost of an employee’s commute to and from work can be a major factor in their employment decision. Peak time traffic congestion is a growing concern n and around Brentwood and all of Middle Tennessee. By partnering with Hytch, we can use existing technology to provide a financial incentive to employees who carpool to work, which reduces the cost of stress of the daily commute while also reducing the number of vehicles on the road.
