How It Works
The iBikeEUG web based app ties into the City's Maintenance Management System. The location of requests is provided by utilizing the GPS location function of mobile devices. The app allows users to include contact information, if a response or additional information is sought. It also allows users to include a photograph.
"Downloading" the App
You can create an app icon on your phone by going to the iBikeEUG website and following these instructions to create an "app shortcut":
- iPhone (must use Safari): At the bottom of the Safari browser, find and tap on the share icon on the menu bar (it looks like a box with an up arrow). From the list of share options, choose Add to Home Screen. An app-looking icon will be created on your home screen. Move it to wherever you’d like and report away!
- Android: Tap the menu icon (three dots in upper right-hand corner) and tap Add to Home Screen. An app-looking icon will be created on your home screen. Move it to wherever you’d like and report away!
iBikeEUG was originally developed jointly by the City of Eugene Public Works Maintenance Division and the University of Oregon InfoGraphics Lab. It has been updated several times by the City's Information Services Division. In 2021 a new progressive web app version was created to better serve more platforms and to allow for faster updating. The previous version of the iBikeEUG app will no longer be updated and will be pulled from the app stores.
