Tell Google Maps Which Car-Free Areas to Capture


by Art Allen, Online Communications Coordinator

Ever get frustrated that you can't see the Midtown Greenway on Google Street View? Or how about Nicollet Mall? Google Maps is correcting this. They are sending out their awesome Google Street View Trike to capture car-free spots:

There are only a handful of pedestrian- and bicycle-only areas covered by Google Street View so far. But that will change soon, and you can help influence what areas are captured.

Tell us where to ride!

The Street View trike has already collected some imagery, but now we're accepting your suggestions for where to send it next in the United States. Send us your most inspired suggestions for the places you really want to see featured in Street View.

So go! Promote your favorite car free spots! Submissions are due by October 28th... and then the voting starts!

In the meantime, you can still plan your walking trips with Google Maps and it will take you along the Midtown Greenway. But don't ask it to give you directions on the Kenilworth Trail, unless you want to walk to Georgia. Or you can plan your bike trips with the more complete Cyclopath
