PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The creators of an app that collects crowdsourced data on driving violations are launching a new platform to track when essential supplies are available at a grocery store.
OurStreets is turning into OurStreets Supplies to inventory retailers’ essential products — like fresh produce, soap and medication — so people can limit the amount of trips they make to the store, and ultimately limit their exposure to COVID-19.
The app can also let policy makers track trends and make decisions.
Shoppers will be able to record what supplies, and how much of it, is available at different locations.
