The City of Thunder Bay is taking an important step toward building a digital community with the launch of their new mobile app pingstreet. Developed by eSolutionsGroup, pingstreet uses location-based technology to give citizens easy access to real-time information directly on their mobile device.

“Connecting with the City of Thunder Bay has never been easier,” said Councillor Shelby Ch’ng, Chair of the Community Communications Committee. “A growing number of people are using their mobile devices to access information, and pingstreet will allow residents and visitors to connect with city information and news in an exciting new way.”

Taking the public-government connection mobile, pingstreet allows citizens to access information, report issues, and communicate with their local government while on-the-go. With data and information management functions, pingstreet is also an excellent tool for data collection, which can help municipalities make informed decisions about the services impacting their community.

“Pingstreet gives users real-time access to relevant, timely, tailored information,” added Ch’ng. “This mobile app is one more way we are encouraging public engagement and increasing customer service at City Hall.”

Ch’ng explains that pingstreet is a modern and cost-effective way to interact with the residents of Thunder Bay. With the added bonus of being able to customize their pingstreet implementation, the City of Thunder Bay currently features information such as garbage and recycling calendars, transit schedules and stops, real-time municipal service issues reporting, road closures and detours, news and emergency alerts and community event calendars.
