Blue Rhino

Built for your next emergency tank run

Imagine being surrounded by a group of hungry people and when you go to light up the grill - sparks, but no flame. Blue Rhino makes the emergency tank run painless by suggesting a place to pick up a tank based on actual drive times, so you can get back to the party faster.


Using Mapbox Studio, Blue Rhino created a custom map style and icons that match their brand. Type in your home address or search by zip code, and Mapbox Geocoding API will highlight the Blue Rhino propane retailers near you. Blue Rhino ranks the results using the Mapbox Matrix API to rank them based on the drive time.

Once you select a location, Blue Rhino uses the Mapbox Directions API to give you turn instructions that you can send directly to your phone.

Maps feature data from Mapbox and OpenStreetMap and their data partners.
