Onboarding, commute recommendation & groups

We use your commute preferences to find the best commute for you in terms of both mode and groups. Keep your commute preferences always up to date so we can provide you with the perfect commute recommendation. 

Please check whether your commute preferences are complete. In particular whether your home and work address are correct.

 

 

If you are still not satisfied with your recommendation or group please contact support@pavecommute.app.

Your commute recommendation depends on how many users are already using the app and how similar their commute route and preferences are to yours.

 

 

When Pave Commute launches at your organization it can take a few days to receive a group. Later on, the app provides a group immediately in the vast majority of cases.

Commute tracking

You can use the app without GPS tracking, but if you want to collect coins, GPS is required in order to verify that a trip has been completed with a sustainable mode.

 

 

You can choose between manual and automatic commute tracking. With automatic tracking, you need to allow permanent access to the location in the device’s settings. With manual tracking you have to start and stop the commute manually using the start/stop button in the app.

iPhone:

 

Make sure that 

  • you’ve deactivated energy saving mode
  • you’ve set GPS-permissions for Pave Commute to “Always” 

 

Android:

 

Make sure that

  • you’ve excluded Pave Commute from the battery optimization settings
  • you’ve set GPS-permissions for Pave Commute to “Always”

 

If you have further questions, contact support@pavecommute.app.

Your GPS data are handled safely and nobody has access to it. The same is true for your commute preferences such as home address.

 

With the users in your commute groups you share an approximate location of where you live on a map so you can plan your trips together easily.

Collecting coins

Please wait a bit, it takes up to 30 minutes until a commute is processed and coins are transferred. 

 

Please check whether you have started manual tracking in time before your commute. If not, have you allowed automatic tracking? 

 

Be sure that your GPS tracking settings are correct. 

 

If the problem persists, please contact support@pavecommute.app and we will make sure to credit any missing coins.

Please make sure that you didn’t create more than one account. If you did, you might be logged in to the wrong account. Log out and log into your original account again.

 

 

Stick to the sign-in method that you chose at the beginning. If you chose Google/Apple Sign-in, you shouldn’t create another account via e-mail sign-in. 

 

 

If the problem persists, please contact support@pavecommute.app.

Other frequently asked questions

We have tested the app with the most common smartphone models and haven’t noticed any extraordinary battery drainage. However, we can’t guarantee anything for older models. If you have an issue with an older phone, try switching from automatic to manual commute tracking.
