This is a Transportation Techies meetup group event in the DC Area and their next meeting is about ‘Cool Mobility Apps’. It’s on Thursday, October 2 @6pm. More details here.
What’s on the agenda:
For October, we’ll be discussing four 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.
• Trevor Gerhardt of Conveyal will show us their Transit Tech Initiative with Arlington County, specifically the “evaluating a commute” portion of the program.
• Eric Meyer will tell us about the Baltimore-based Haystack mobile app, which lets people buy and sell street-side parking spaces.
• Chase Donnelly and Peter Mazzeo will demo their new Boontrek app, which creates a community marketplace for ride sharing.
• Peter Shashkin and Vitaliy Fedonkin from EastBanc Technologies will show us TransitIQ, which analyzes transit data, detecting anomalies, bus bunching, and more. EastBanc works with SmarTrip cards and is the company behind developer.wmata.com.
