Transit Techies NYC makes its next stop. Doors will open at 6:30pm, and we'll start talks at 7! We will have light refreshments and pizza. We'll do the normal dance of eat + mingle, listen + present, mingle + leave.
Sunny Ng, creator of goodservice.io, will demo his newest project The Weekendest (https://www.theweekendest.com/), a real-time map of MTA delays and service changes.
Ivy Pan from Via will dive into data analysis around Via's ridership patterns, including ridership demand throughout the day, geo zones/routes with high demand, and potential areas of growth.
Joshua Gee, Jay Sathe, and Abhilash Achenkunju from the MTA will talk about the work they did to roll out brand new real-time transit templates throughout the system, including the Next Train and Service Alerts boards you might have noticed on your daily commute!
Joe Rodriguez, inspired by the peril of commuting daily on Canal Street, has explored ways to measure traffic violence at a micro level, and the role enforcement plays in reducing crashes. He has compiled a collection of moving violations in NYC by NYPD precinct and will walk us through movingviolations.nyc.
As always, after the speakers we'll open the floor to announcements anyone might have.
