Downtown Raleigh Alliance Launches Brand New Downtown App
RALEIGH, NC (February 19, 2016) – The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is pleased to launch the new Downtown Raleigh App, your personal guide to having a great time downtown.
The app displays downtown’s ample parking options, gives pricing for decks, and even allows users to set a timer to let them know when their meter runs out. To alert users of upcoming road closures, the app sends push notifications when streets within downtown close for events or construction and provides a graphic display of all downtown street closures.
“We really did our homework when it came to developing this app. We looked at similar applications from other cities and saw that ours was really a one of a kind application. It’s free, easy to use, and is truly a one stop shop for all things downtown,” said Downtown Raleigh Alliance President and CEO, David Diaz.
The app caters to all demographics from the occasional visitor to the downtown resident by featuring downtown’s amazing dining, retail, and nightlife options as well as upcoming events and unique specials. Whether a user needs to find directions to his destination, park a car, or track the R-LINE in real time, the new app holds the answer.
For a one-minute summary of the app’s features, watch our new video.
The Downtown Raleigh Alliance thanks our sponsors and partner for making the app possible: Title Sponsor –ABC11 Eyewitness News; Button Sponsor—Pepsi; Partner –City of Raleigh.
The Alliance is available both today and Monday, February 22 for media interviews.
