ride the city (safer, safe or direct)

Ride the City launched over a year ago starting with NYC and is now available for Chicago, Austin, and Louisville! The HopStop of navigating the city - plug in your point A and B, select the type of route from "safer", "safe" or "direct" and the directions, distance, and estimated time pop up...

The best aspect of the using this application is that by selecting "safer route" - it steers you toward routes that maximize the use of bike lanes, bike paths, greenways, and other bike-friendly streets. Nice since there are so many new bike lanes in that popped up recently, I have a hard time keeping track.
