10 reasons to
make Bengaluru
walkable again! 

1

Footpaths are replete with issues

Infrastructure failures like inactive traffic lights and inappropriately-timed crossing signals, no wayfinding and pedestrian navigation systems, and lack of street lighting at night, make pedestrians more vulnerable

Challenge cities face:

  • City budgets are highly insufficient to build or even maintain footpaths on all roads ​

   

  • Too many different structural and recurring challenges make it difficult to solve the problems holistically and effectively

Changing the status quo requires prioritising our efforts and resources and leveraging citizens as end users to achieve the most speedy and effective outcomes

Introducing 

A new civic tool to give power to citizens to collaboratively create local walkability plans - integrating all the requirements of issue mapping, solution identification, and budget estimation in one place.
