Bikeshares have rapidly become more prevalent in cities around the world, and tourists increasingly view it as a quick, easy, and economical way to cover more ground. But navigating new streets and seeing the sights on a bicycle requires lots of extra planning, or a tedious ride of starting and stopping to check a map.
Biketinerary is a mobile app and audio guide of curated tours based on a city's bikeshare network. Using GPS data, Biketinerary knows where its users are, helping to locate bikeshare stations and sites to visit, and mapping out biking routes. During the ride, the app measures the user’s location and velocity. Audio cues give her directions to navigate the city, and highlight interesting facts as she rides and stops at recommended points of interest.
