FresGo

Are you tired of driving around that same pothole every day? Tired of looking at graffiti on your walk to the bus? Notice some illegal dumping on your street? The City of Fresno wants to do something about it, and they are counting on YOU to assist them with these problems and others by reporting them using the FresGo App.

FresGo is an app specifically for Fresno residents to know what’s going on in their city. It allows residents to access the City of Fresno all in one location. The overall purpose of the program is to improve resident communications and service delivery within our city.

With this app, residents can submit, track, and view service requests nearby. FresGo users can take a picture of their service request, give the location, and send the request directly to the City of Fresno. They can log into their FresGo account to check the status of their request, or sign up for receive alerts on their requests.

For example, say you are driving on a surface street and you hit a pothole. You car tire pops and you pull over. Once it is safe, you can find the pothole that made your tire go flat, login to the FresGo app, take a picture of the pothole, choose your location, and send it directly to the City of Fresno. The City of Fresno will be notified of the problem and start preparations to fix it. If you are curious how quickly the problem will be dealt with, you can sign up to receive alerts on the pothole request or simply check the status on the FreGo app.

By participating in the usage of the FresGo app, you can make the city of Fresno a safer and more efficient place to live.
