Try this new App
A new app called GiveMeGreen! links to traffic signals through a smartphone.
The technology senses when a cyclist is within 300-feet of an intersection and sends a signal to change the light to green. The rider gets a notice via text or vibration that their approach is received.
Locations for GiveMeGreen (see map):
- West Jefferson Boulevard/Freeman Street
- Ardmore Avenue/Taylor Street
- Engle Road/Statesmans Way
- West Jefferson/Lutheran Hospital
- Franke Park Drive/Wells Street
- Aboite Center Road/Homestead Road
- Hanna Street/Oxford Street
- Hanna Street/Creighton Avenue
- Hanna Street/Pontiac Street
Fort Wayne is the second test city for the app, developed by Sensys Networks. The first test market was Santa Clarita, California.
