INFO-Neige MTL

Client : City of Montreal

Problem

The City of Montreal was looking for a modern solution to better communicate the snow-removal schedule for streets, a great source of frustration for Montrealers. Also, car tows due to parking restrictions cause large inefficiencies to the flow of the municipal snow removal operation.

Solution

Create a mobile app which allows the city to communicate the snow removal status and schedule through their open-data portal, on a street by street basis with a simple color code. Citizens can save targeted street sides to receive notifications, which allows them to plan their parking more efficiently.
