About Chi Safe Path
Sidewalks are an integral part of how we get where we need to go, whether it's simply down the block to get a gallon of milk or all the way across town. They enable us to use other forms of transportation: buses, trains and even our cars. When sidewalks and curb cuts are in need of repair, they have the potential to stop us in our tracks.
This is especially true for those who may use wheelchairs, or other forms of mobility assistance. What may be a minor inconvenience for many could result in hours of additional travel time for someone who is differently abled.
Chi Safe Path allows anyone with access to the internet to report any hazards on sidewalks or other public walkways directly to the city of Chicago's 311 Services.
Additionally, the app allows access directions avoiding reported hazards, making it easier to get from point A to point B without worrying as much about what could be in between.
