Reporting cycle infrastructure problems

Do any of you remember Omar Khalifa from Bicycle NSW? The period he spent in charge was one of the most active, high impact and effective periods in the history of BNSW advocacy, and he was very popular with members.

He ended up resigning after the board used proxies to defeat his plans to reform the organisation to make it more accountable to members.

The good news is he has been far from idle. Smiling From bicycles.net.au:

Go! Fix... coming (very) soon
by Omar@Go-Alliance » Tue May 28, 2013 10:04 pm

The new reporting tool and mobile application Go! Fix from Go! Alliance working with SeeClickFix is now only weeks away from launch! We are finalising the categories and design for release across all mobile platforms and an online version thanks to the recent helpful inputs from members of the cycling community including here on BNA.

In just 3 clicks on the free Go! Fix mobile App anyone will be able to identify and report a road hazard, report a stolen or abandoned bike, identify a pinch point or make a request for a bike rack or ramp (among other options). Each report is automatically geo-tagged and allows a picture to be attached. A corresponding flag then appears on the Go! Fix map.

Anyone can see what has been reported and any updates can be entered on the mobile or dedicated web page (we plan to offer it here within BNA!). Alerts can also be set based on user defined boundaries.

We have already gained a number of endorsements though there are still opportunities for sponsors, BUGs and community groups to support the application and to be recognised within it and the areas they cover. Interested councils are also encouraged to get in touch to see how they can tap their systems into the community reports. Follow-ups through Omar@go-alliance.net

More about Go! Fix, our supporters and the launch date soon...
