PING if you care – changing Brussels at the push of a button

Improving your city by pushing a button, that is the idea behind the new ‚PING if you Care‘ project. Starting end of May 2017, cyclists will be able to mark Brussel’s unsafe or unsatisfying traffic situations by pushing their PING button. This is a Bluetooth-enabled device which maps the marked spots. At the end of the pilot phase, all the information will be analysed and presented to the city of Brussels to enhance infrastructure planning.
