Are you a cyclist?
Are you interested in public health?
How about transportation planning?
Do you like to volunteer?
Do you love data?
If you answered yes to any of those, we need your help with this project.
The City of Boston is in the midst of analyzing four years of police report data of bicycle incidents and needs your help. There are over 1,800 incident reports that need to be coded and entered into a computer program called aptly named "the Pedestrian and Bicycle Crash Analysis Tool" (PBCAT).
On Friday, April 5th the project team will be opening up a computer lab at Boston City Hall to a small army of volunteers and entering all 1,800 reports in one day!! To make this happen we are asking people to sign up for a 3-hour shift of PBCATing.
We need your 3-hours to help make our streets safer and continue to grow bicycling in Boston.
