Walk safer. Bike better. Move more. Know before you go,
with SafePath.

Active transportation options are fundamental to improving the health of our community and quality of urban life, as well as reducing our carbon footprint and social inequalities. SafePath gives you real-time information about sidewalk, pathway, and bike lane obstructions and hazards to make cities more accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

Improving Local Accessibility & Activity

From construction blocking your way to sidewalks covered in ice, getting around the city can be both annoying and hazardous. The SafePath app crowdsources information by encouraging you to record local sidewalk and pathway dangers or inconveniences in real-time.
