App does just it’s supposed to do!

You tap to launch it and it tells you whether or not it’s a spare the air day in the Bay Area. Not sure what the negative reviews about.

This is my tax dollars at work?

I didn’t think is could possibly be as bad as some of the reviews were making it out to be. I was wrong! It even has a biking tab on the app! To test it, I ask for a route from San Jose to San Francisco. It did absolutely nothing except put my location several hundred miles off of the west coast of Africa out in the ocean. App lasted for about 45 seconds on my phone. Don’t waste your time.
