Presented by William Henderson

Ride Report is a new app that allows Portlanders to log their biking experiences and help improve bike infrastructure. The Ride Report app can detect when users are biking, and logs trips of any length automatically. It also lets users rate the trip with a single tap.

Ride Report is creating open source traffic and safety data that can be used to help other riders, as well as advocates and planners. Through an Innovation Fund grant, PBOT is partnering with Knock to promote the Ride app and pilot low-cost physical bike counters at locations throughout the City.  This talk will explain how the app works and share some of the early analytics tools Knock Software has created around the data.

William Henderson cofounded Knock Software, Inc in Portland, which created Ride Report after its success with the consumer security product Knock to Unlock. Prior to this, William lead the team that created the Square payment app and worked on Mac and iPhone apps at Apple. He graduated from Reed College with a degree in Mathematics.
