Fremont announced their SiBike pilot project with a flyer in the bike bags today (5/9/2019). A phone app will detect your location and direction and use it to notify traffic control to get you a green light. Your travel information will be recorded and used to help plan better bike routes and to provide better routing information to other cyclists as well. Information about the covered intersections and obtaining the app is in the blurb below. If you have questions, or security or privacy concerns, there is contact information at the bottom of the blurb below.
