Google Names Street View Trike Contest Winners

Bike fitted with street level imagery cameras to visit five locations in the U.S.

Last October, Google unveiled the Street View trike, which was designed to go to places cars couldn't go. With the unveiling came a contest to decide where the Street View trike would go next.

Today, Google named the winners. They are:

  • Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY
  • Boulder Creek Path, Boulder, CO
  • Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston, MA
  • National Mall, Washington, DC
  • Detroit Zoo, Detroit, MI

238,000 people voted in the contest. Google says that the interest in the project has caused them to examine sending the Street View trike to other finalists despite not winning. Stay tuned for more news about the Street View trike as it happens.
