CycleStreets is the online cycle journey planner system which originated as an initiative of the Campaign. And we’re pleased to announce that an iPhone version of the system should be available by the time you read this! Other mobile platforms will hopefully follow as funding is found or volunteers come forward.
CycleStreets Mobile enables you to plan a cycle journey wherever you are in Cambridge (or indeed, the rest of the UK). The app will automatically locate where you are. Selecting a destination will then show you the route there.
The photomap is also available – so you can take a picture of an infrastructure problem (e.g. a pothole) on-street, and add it to the CycleStreets Photomap directly!
This first release of a mobile version of CycleStreets has been made possible by generous grants from the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund and from Cycle Cambridge.
