Challenge #2 – Ride Green Hampton Roads

Create an app or website that helps find and access clean transportation solutions.

Examples:

  1. Help Educate Norfolk Bicyclists about the Elizabeth River Trail and address potential issues:
    • It is difficult to locate the trail.
    • It is difficult to navigate the trail – missing signage, trail closures, etc.
    • Locations of amenities are unknown – benches, bike racks, water fountains, bike maintenance
      stations, etc.
    • Local businesses along the trail are not promoted.
  2. Analyze Bike data to figure out the most commuted and safest routes
  3. Organize a ride share program to help people find & share rides.
  4. Create a prototype installation to track the HRT bus at each bus stop.
