In an effort to improve your commute using digital tools, the City and Commute Seattle are sponsoring Hack the Commute this weekend:
The City of Seattle and Commute Seattle invite data analysts, developers, designers, and other innovators to help design user-centric tools that improve the commute. These can take the form of:
- improvements to existing applications
- new tools to help commuters in any mode or modes of transportation
- data analysis and visualizations that clarify the big picture
Teams will have the opportunity to present their work to a panel of judges, with the top three project ideas moving on to a championship round. Work will be judged based on its potential to make commuting in Seattle easier and more pleasant for everyone.
Several STB folks will be there over the course of the weekend. The event itself is sold out, but there are still tickets available for the demos on Sunday evening. Got ideas for a great app? Go to the Reddit thread or leave them in the comments below.
