Portland, OR to improve infrastructure planning through bike data collection

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is partnering with tech startup Ride Report to collect feedback from thousands of local bicyclists.
Ride Report is a mobile app that uses sensors and machine learning to track users’ bike riding habits and goals, and it solicits input at the end of each ride about users’ experiences while riding on hundreds of Portland’s streets.
PBOT said it plans to use the shared, but anonymous, data to help it make better, safer planning decisions to further develop the city’s biking infrastructure.
