Portland State University has developed a smartphone app to collect route, infrastructure, crash, and safety data for the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). ORcycle will let you record your bicycle trips, display maps of your rides, and provide feedback regarding crashes, safety, or infrastructure issues. Transportation planners currently do not have enough data about the Oregon's cycling population and their routes. Also, at the moment there is no systematic way to receive feedback regarding safety or infrastructure issues. The ORcycle application has been designed in conjunction with ODOT to be used by transportation planners to better design or upgrade bicycle facilities.
