RALEIGH—The City of Raleigh will be implementing a new iPhone application to make Raleigh's greenway system more user-friendly.
The “RGreenway” app is set for release on Monday, September 10 on the RGreenway website.
RGreenway was named a top prize winner at CityCamp Raleigh in June. The camp is a three-day workshop that brings citizens, city government and businesses together to shape the future of Raleigh through applications and technology.
The new program will show the 77-mile, 3,700-acre greenway system as a single, divided park.
According to the RGreenway development team, no other city or community of cities has invested as much into a greenway navigation app like Raleigh and the Triangle area.
RGreenway users will have the ability not only to see their current location, but also how they can connect to other trails.
The application will feature Raleigh’s GPS data, to show available parking, other trails and nearby points of interest.
In addition to the GPS data, users will also have the ability to report potholes, graffiti and streetlight outages they see throughout the greenway system, with the “See, Click, Fix” program.
Users will be able to download the application to their iPhone from the Apple iTunes store.
