Step (2)

Download the OurStreets App!

OurStreets is a smart phone 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 OurStreets reports in the Rochester City limits will be scrubbed of personal information and will be 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 that information to advocate for geographically specific, data-driven solutions.
