Abstract: I report on an ongoing programme of proper motion measurements in the Galactic bulge using HST images. As a first application, the data are used to derive the vertical gravitational acceleration on the minor axis of the Galaxy. Implications of the measurement for the flattening of the Galactic potential are discussed.
