Reducing Congestion One Day at a Time

Traffic congestion is only increasing in the Austin, Texas area and their community needs a technologically advanced solution to solve it. At the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, that is their forte. They have built the 183A Toll road in Cedar Park and Leander and it has completely transformed the communities around it for the better. hey also built the U.S. 290 toll road between Austin and Manor which was able to triple the capacity of the previous road. It has also greatly improved the nontoll lanes.

 

Mobility Authority strives to innovate and the new MoPac Express Lanes that is underway will use technology to assist on traffic flow. Congestion cannot be entirely erased, but it s possible to get it under control. Variable tolling rates can synchronize supply and demand to help maintain a more predictable flow of traffic.

 

Mobility Authority is working on creating roads that are considered to be “smart” and that can detect a car that may be going up the ramp in the opposite direction, for example. Mobility Authority has joined forces with Metropia in order to create a mobile traffic app that can provide current alternative routes for its travelers. They are also working with Carma, a carpooling app, to encourage commuters to share their rides. Right now there is a shocking percentage of 900,000 empty car seats daily caused by drivers tat do not carpool. If that can be eliminated or at least lessoned, then congestion would go down substantially.

 

Mobility Authority doesn’t have all the answers, but they have partnered with the Texas Department of Transportation, and the counties of Central Texas in order to try and reduce traffic jams in the area. They have a personal stake in the cause because after all, they share the roads, too.

 

Mike Heiligenstein, Director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, and has served the Mobility Authority since 2003. During that time the agency has developed its very first toll road 183A and has worked hard to implement technology into its traffic solutions. Mike Heiligenstein’s a strong advocate for pedestrian and bicycle facilities and has worked very hard to ensure that such facilities were made possible.

 

Mike Heiligenstein has spent 30 years as a public official and is very focused on infrastructure projects. He has been a part of many projects, including many transportation projects and major parkland acquisitions.

How Fabletics Rose to the Top of the “Athleisure” Wear Market

One of the most noticeable trends in 2016 was the growing increase in stylish “athleisure” wear. This gear has been spotted among top celebrities as they grab coffee, shop and go about their daily lives. “Athleisure” wear is designed to transition from gym to brunch, meaning it is functional in the gym, or wherever you work out, and it is also highly trendy outside of a place meant for fitness.

 

What many people don’t know is that this growing trend is extremely lucrative. In fact, U.S. consumers spent $44 billion on active wear in 2016 and that number is only continuing to spike in the first quarter of 2017.

 

One of the brands that has positioned itself at the top if its field is Fabletics. If you haven’t yet been introduced to Fabletics, it was founded by actress and fitness guru Kate Hudson. In the past three years it has generated over $250 million in revenue and has drawn a group of devoted brand advocates that not only continually buy from the brand, but that are its biggest promoters on their own social media and blogs.

 

One of the reasons for the brand’s success is its use of the reverse showroom technique. While many companies are facing extremely high overhead in their traditional storefronts, and offer customers a one-size-fits-all experience, Fabletics reverse showroom technique has drawn buyers by the millions. Instead of a traditional storefront, Fabletics has gone digital first. Website visitors are treated to an online showroom and athletic wear tailored to their personal preferences.

 

When a user first visits Fabletics, they are invited to take a fun and simple Lifestyle Quiz. This quiz asks questions about their personal style, the type of exercise they like to do and in what environment they work out. From there, Fabletics generates a personal style profile that determines what pieces users receive each month.

 

This unique and high-energy style comes directly from founder Kate Hudson, who ensures she is consistently innovating and hands on with her brand. In a recent CNBC article, she shared tips to help other brands achieve the landmark success she has seen. She recommended focusing on finding marketing opportunities, staying hands on, relying on big data, staying inspired and, of course, to always believe in yourself and not being afraid to take risks.

 

As Fabletics continues to see a mass amount of success, Hudson stays involved consistently with nearly every major decision in her brand.
