The power of shared information
MyTown, powered by Pingstreet, is a free, user-friendly and powerful app that facilitates two-way communication between citizens and their local governments.
Over 30 municipalities across North America currently use MyTown to provide residents with access to a wide range of public notices and events, a customizable garbage and recycling calendar, school and bus alerts, hospital wait times and much, much more.
The power of real-time connections
MyTown features HotLine, a tool that makes it easy for citizens to anonymously report sensitive or possibly illegal information to law enforcement.
MyTown’s Smart Maps platform links multiple IoT devices to track and display critical information in real-time. It allows city staff to monitor and optimize municipal assets such as buses, garbage trucks, snow removal equipment, video cameras and smart street lights.
The power of knowledge
The level of access and transparency MyTown provides allows residents to feel more connected to their communities while staff and elected officials become better informed and more responsive, leading to better decision-making and happier citizens.

HotLine provides security
HotLine allows residents to anonymously report sensitive or potentially illegal information directly from their smartphones while providing local authorities with critical, real-time information.
Instant reporting prompts immediate action
Citizens can easily, intuitively and instantly report incidents they are witnessing without having to get directly involved in the situation. These reports are sent to the city, its law enforcement agencies or other predetermined organizations for quick action.
Trend analysis informs a safer future
HotLine works with Smart Maps to enable back-end users to see the origin of anonymous tips pinpointed to within a 250-metre area in the city. With HotLine’s analytical capabilities, this information is further used to analyze suspicious activity trends and create a geographic visual reference in specific city zones. Assuring citizens’ safety and security is paramount to every administration’s success.
