New app for tracking your Providence bike route

BikeWays_splashWebHelp make Providence a better city for cycling!

Download the VHB Bikeways App through iTunes for iphone users or Google Play for Android, and record your rides. Simply tap Start to begin recording your ride, and save it at the end, specifying a purpose. At the end of each trip, data about your ride route, date, time and purpose will be automatically sent to VHB transportation planners’ servers. By compiling maps and statistics about your rides, they’ll better understand cyclists’ needs throughout the city.

Visit the Bike Providence website for more details about the Bike Providence study in addition to specific directions for each phone.
