How can we harness existing data to reimagine our transportation infrastructure without starting from scratch?
We had a presentation of projects that used data to improve access to information and the commuter experience on a collective scale. We heard from the creators of digitalMatatus, which leverages mobile technology in developing countries to collect data, improve infrastructure, and encourage better access to information; and Bridj, a service that uses millions of data points to provide a network of express shuttles that adapt in real-time.
Participants: Joshua Crandall, Founder/CEO of Clever Commute; Matthew George, CEO of Bridj; David King, assistant professor of Urban Planning at Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation; Charles Komanoff, director of Komanoff Energy Associates; Sarah Williams, director of the Civic Data Design Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
