Safe Cycle Toronto

Get a safety rating for the next place you want to lock up your bike, generated using historical data from the Toronto Police Service

Welcome to Safe Cycle Toronto

To use this app, input the exact address where you will be locking up your bike, and using the Toronto Police Department's open source crime data, we will give you the number of bikes stolen within a 1km radius of this address in 2017.

Across Toronto, these numbers range between 0 and approximately 600 so we have provided a relative safety rating based on this range.

We want to make it safer to park your bike, so inputted address are all stored to a database. If a user has entered a "safe" area within 5km of your "unsafe" area, an option will be provided to get directions to this safer area.

Happy biking!
