Do you love open data, data visualizations, and mapping? Can you use your skills to help people find healthy, efficient, and sustainable transportation options?
The Transportation Techies meetup group is a community of people involved in transportation and technology. The group primarily consists of programmers who love playing with transportation data, and others interested in transit, biking & walking. We have over 500 members: entrepreneurs, computer scientists, transit nerds, urban planners, students, and armchair enthusiasts. We meet once a month. Our speakers typically demonstrate apps and data visualizations. Because our primary audience is programmers, we often talk about how the code works, but non-coders are welcome as well.
Mobility Lab wants to encourage technologists to share discoveries and innovations. There are a lot of APIs and data sources already available, waiting for programmers to put them to use. We want to explore all sustainable transportation options, for the roadway and beyond, including rail, marine, and aviation.
