Disclosed herein are a system and method providing a better way to travel to one’s destination. The system includes an app that provides push notifications to users regarding weather changes and also provides prior forecast intimation if weather conditions are likely to affect the schedule based on predicted commutes of the user. The app provides integration of weather information with activity, location, speed, maps data and calendar functions. The app suggests solutions which would guide the user to pre-plan, postpone, re-route or reschedule the earlier plan in order to avoid any disruption. Depending on the user’s selection, the app will re-route the ride or offer helpful follow-up actions in case a delay is predicted. The disclosed method addresses weather and other inhibiting factors for commuting by bike and could potentially be useful even for automated transport or movement of goods and services.
