A project of Boston’s Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, Street Bump helps residents improve their neighborhood streets. People use the Street Bump mobile app to collect road condition data while they drive. Boston aggregates the data across users to provide the city with real-time information to fix short-term problems and plan long-term investments.
In collaboration with New Urban Mechanics, Connected Bits designed and developed the app, which is freely available so that others can use and build on the project’s efforts. Street Bump won in the ‘Goverment-to-citizen’ local government category from the Digital Government Achievement Awards (DGAA).
