Challenge #2 – Ride Green Hampton Roads

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


  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.
