OurStreets is a smartphone app that can help make Rochester a safer city for all of us to navigate.

It is a one-stop shop to crowdsource dangerous driving behavior and other dangerous situations such as cars parked in bike lanes.

For example, if you are riding in a bike lane and you approach a vehicle blocking it, you can simply:

1) stop

2) snap a picture, and

3) upload the information to the app

All data collected within the Rochester City limits will be scrubbed of personal information and aggregated on a city map. This is not an app to make people look bad or report crime.  It is a tool that will allow us to quantify where and when people who bike and walk are vulnerable. We Bike Rochester will use this information to advocate for geographically specific, data-driven solutions.

If you would like to report an issue not listed above, such as a gap in the bike path network or areas where bike parking is needed, please contact us at we.bike.rochester@gmail.com. We actively collect this information to improve our infrastructure and continue making bicycling in Rochester safer for everyone.
