Textizen

Details

  • Description: We wrote and deployed a text message-based polling system in Philadelphia to help the city planning commission gather more representative and quantifiable feedback toward their Phila2035 strategic plan. Our first set of polls involved rapid transit in the Northeast District, and kid-friendliness and public parks & rec use in Center City.
  • Impact: By providing opportunities for citizens to submit feedback via text messaging, Textizen is making it easier for a broader set of citizens' voices to be heard by city government.
