Járókelő.hu is a Budapest based non-profit NGO which has been working since 2012 to help citizens being able to report public space issues, like potholes, faded zebra crossings, dead trees or graffiti to councils or utility service providers in order to solve these problems, creating a better, livelier and healthier urban environment. Since 2012 we have helped and guided citizens to point out more than 64.000 problems, mainly in Budapest but in many other smaller and bigger cities around Hungary.
Using your smart phone or your PC you can easily report any type of public space issues through our website at www.jarokelo.hu. You need to give a short description of the detected problem, attach one to five photos and finally pin the location on the map. You can either send the message with your name or be anonymus, it is totally up to you. Your message will be sent to the local council or to some of the utility service providers after a short check, as we do not accept any reports regarding to homelessness. After this short check in 30 days you get notified about the state of the problem you reported, and hopefully it will be solved within a couple of weeks or months.
