The Glasgow Cycling app allows users to record their routes for the potential future benefit of the city. The data will inform future decisions on city infrastructure to improve the cycling network.
The anonymous information will be made available via Glasgow’s Future City website so the data can be explored by anyone.
Glasgow City Council leader Gordon Matheson told the BBC: “This new app will provide accurate information which will be extremely helpful when decisions are being made on where and how to upgrade or extend cycling facilities. I hope bikers will seize this chance to contribute directly to work to make Glasgow more bike friendly.”
An Android version of the app is forthcoming.
The move comes due to the lack of any real data on cyclists in Glasgow. Do you think other cities will follow suit?
