Cool Mobility Apps: September Edition

For September, we'll be discussing three tech projects and their impact on local transportation issues. Doors open at 6:00 with pizza and drinks, and the presentations start at 6:30. The lobby entrance is on Oak St. The revolving doors might be locked, but the doors beside them should remain unlocked all night. Mobility Lab is on the 11th floor.

• Nick Ramfos of MWCOG will show us their new Commuter Connections app which helps you find carpool partners, locate park-and-ride lots, and access other tools to find easier, less expensive ways to get to work.

• Stephanie Nguyen of Silica Labs will preview their upcoming "Landmark" app, which helps people navigate streets using landmarks rather than traditional maps.

• Lou Huang will show us streetmix, a project he worked on as a Code for America fellow, and introduce us to a related Code for America project, transitmix.

    I'm not a programmer but I am interested in how new mobile and web based technologies can help improve urban transportation. I biked to the meeting from the Navy Yard neighborhood of D.C. and wrote about my impressions of the Meetup at www.navyyardproject.com.

    All three presentations were great. I loved Landmark because I am kind of obsessed with architecture photos. (@pgoddin on Instagram--plug!). Streetmix was great too. Where have I been that I hadn't heard of that until now. Thanks Michael for creating this community.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
