Civic Hack Night - #HackForChange redux

We had some great progress at the #HackForChange event and we're going to follow up with our Proof of Concept for GPS bus tracking for the City of New Haven!

Our goal is to pilot a GPS tracker on the Green bus that goes from the New Haven Green to Union Station.

We have a lot of progress and our notes are at

This meetup we'll be going through a review of progress on our first hack day and we'll be planning how this project can continue moving forward.

    Got in a car accident kind of unlikely to make it at this point.

    I'm at YEI, 55 Whitney :D

    Here's a google streetview of the front door:,-72.922113,3a,75y,92.8h,88.17t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sGBW_YDc82vHwpOYG1lWsDw!2e0!6m1!1e1

    I put a sign on the door with directions, and you can call me if you have any trouble getting in or finding it![masked]

    Unfortunately I'm still at work and it doesn't look as though I'll be getting out in time to make it tonight.

    Looking forward to the next meetup though!

    Casey will be joining us, so let's switch from Koffee to YEI which is right around the corner and a lot more spacious.

    Since we've got a small group today and Zack B isn't available, let's meet over at "Koffee on Audobon". I'll have to leave just before 7, but y'all are welcome to keep going after.

    Hi! I read about the GPS to GTFS realtime project and it's quite cool. I actually worked on something very similar to this (using GPS to generate GTFS-RT, displayed by OneBusAway's visualizer) for Kansas City's National Day of Civic Hacking last year, and I'd like to come to this! I have a commitment on this date, but I might be able to show up an hour or so late. What time will the hacking be ending, approximately? If not, will there be another meeting for this project in the next month? I'm in New Haven until late July. Thanks!

      Hi Bradley,
      We'll be meeting today to figure out how to best follow up after our first "Hack For Change". There should be another working meetup in about a month.

    Sadly, I don't have time to make this one.

    Do email me, though, if you're having trouble with the pygtfs_realtime thing we wrote: it's pretty barebones.
