The I'm Stuck app allows people to share their commuting horror stories with the US Congress so they can advocate for investments in transportation. The traffic app was created by Building America's Future, a political coalition chaired by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Pennsylvania governor Edward Rendell and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. BAF is dedicated to investing in roads, and similar infrastructure.

Whether you're stuck in traffic on the freeway, stranded on an airport tarmac or waiting endlessly at a bus stop, the I'm Stuck App allows you to send a pre-written complaint to the appropriate US representative. The app creators have a national focus and see the on-the-ground complaints as a powerful lobbying tool.
