GARDEN CITY — The Ada County Highway District announced Tuesday the launch of two new apps aimed at making services provided in the county more accessible to citizens.

“The ACHD Bike Map App gives users access to the District’s interactive bike map that was developed for planning purposes. The app helps users identify streets and roads where bike routes have been established. The map also includes bike air and repair stations, Greenbike locations, park-and-ride locations, ACHD bike facilities and the Greenbelt, as well as other paths and trails,” explained ACHD spokesperson Natalie Shaver.

The second app is the ACHD Reporter App. “This app makes reporting issues like potholes, sight obstructions, signal malfunctions, icy roadways and any other concerns simpler. The app allows people to select an issue, upload a picture, set a location and add comments. The user will then hit submit and the information will be sent directly to ACHD to address,” Shaver said.

“We are excited to provide these easy-access apps to our customers,” said ACHD Commission President Rebecca Arnold. “Now people will be able to report problems more readily to us, and have help navigating the network of bike lanes and other transportation amenities in the area.”

Both apps are now available in the app store for both Android and iPhone.
