Can Brussels’ cycling infrastructure be changed at the push of a button? (Belgium)


English

A new project in Brussels is giving citizens a chance to influence cycling infrastructure within the Belgian capital: and all with the push of a button.

“PING if you care”, which started in May, enables bike riders to mark unsafe traffic situations or unsatisfactory cycling infrastructure that they encounter. This is done by pressing the PING button, a wireless Bluetooth-enabled device that can be attached to bikes or clothing. The button then sends the data to an app via Bluetooth.
