The bicycle parking project is powered by cyclists from all around who help build up the database of bicycle racks and other bicycle parking spaces creating a stronger bicycle community by making it easier to plan a ride and get around town without worrying about where to park your bike when you get there (wherever there may be).
The project will also help identify locations lacking in bicycle parking and make an effort to coordinate new parking spots with city officials and business owners.
How it Works
Anyone with the mobile app installed on their mobile device can enter bicycle parking data. Required: the mobile device must have a camera and must allow the app to access their gps location. The app picks up your gps coordinates when you snap a picture of the bike rack or bicycle parking area and sends that information to the main server to be processed. Once the data is processed and verified the new parking space will be available on the public map for everyone to see!
Where it Began
The bicycle parking project began in the San Francisco bay area with hopes that it will catch on all over the country and even other countries if interest grows.
Long Term Goals
Give cyclists the tools to make cycling easier, safer and more convenient for everyone!
