The app Bike Citizens is available for Android and iOS. The app is free of charge.
Frankfurt city and Bike Citizens have a cooperation where the usage of the anonymous recording of bike usage, will enable the city to do a a better planning.
“In our city of short distances, cycling is becoming more popular every year. Now we want to create the bicycle city of Frankfurt. We want to have the best possible planning basis for this. It helps us to know even more precisely the paths that the Frankfurters actually travel by bike. The use of the app can thus make a valuable contribution to making cycling planning in Frankfurt particularly citizen-friendly and needs-oriented. That’s why the city supports the ‘bikecitizens’ app and wants to encourage the cycling population to make use of this smart service,” said Klaus Oesterling, Verkehrsdezernent.

Result: A pizza that the restaurant charged $24 for was now listed in Doordash as $16. So the restaurant was doing a clean $8 profit per pizza.
“In that sense, the internet is very much like the highway-and-road system in the U.S. There are small two-lane roads that lead to homes and businesses. There are larger, secondary roads that have larger businesses and residential complexes on them. And there are interstate highways, where the traffic goes fast for long distances without a lot of entrances and exits. The internet has almost exactly the same network of connections—big, high-speed, high-volume ones that cross continents and pass under the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans; medium-size ones inside cities; and “last mile” connections directly to individual homes and businesses.”
