Bunz Evolves From Its Facebook Roots With New App Update

Bunz, the app that spawned a community-driven movement in Canada, is poised to break globally with their latest app release, their largest yet.

It’s been a very big year for the Toronto-based startup. Since launching in January 2016, the app (based on the popular Facebook group) has amassed 100,000 members onto the platform, in nearly every major city in Canada, and in over 250 cities around the world. Originally centred on cashless bartering, the app provided an essential service for thousands of people as they exchanged things they no longer needed, for things they did.

Bunz responds to a need being felt by Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Household consumer debt is at an all-time high, surpassing even our national GDP; vacancy rates in cities are plummeting, and national unemployment is creeping higher each month. These are issues that existing social networks haven’t been able to respond to, effectively. The introduction of the latest update from Bunz aims to change that. They call it: The City Network.

What is The City Network? It’s a way for people to get the things they need from the city they live in, sourced from their neighbours. It’s not about social networks or marketplaces, it’s a reliance on strangers to help fill the gap between your real life and your online life. It’s about people coming together in their neighbourhoods. They share resources, advice, and lean on each other which make the city a little safer and a lot more friendly.

Bunz defined what it means to be a Torontonian in 2016. In 2017, the world will discover why Bunz and The City Network is the resource they’ve been waiting for. Get the app on the App Store and on Google Play.
