Millions of people are using e-scooters, e-bikes, and e-mopeds to commute but the streets we use are often unsafe as most bike lanes are inadequate to support the growth of greener modes of transport. Comfort Maps is a tool advocating the use of real-time street safety data in discussions with policymakers. Combining a physical hardware device that mounts on the handlebars of a bicycle or e-scooter with a data visualization platform, Comfort Maps creates a safe and easy method for rating the comfort levels of streets. Ratings and photographic snapshots provide information from direct experience that can improve safety for others.
