The City of Vancouver is hoping technology can help ease congestion and is enlisting the help of strategists, designers, technologists and transportation professionals to participate in a three-day collaborative workshop.
“Hackathon decode congestion” asked participants to work in teams to develop a data-based solution that will improve the city’s transportation network…
The top three ideas at the Hackathon get cash prizes. First place gets $5,000, second place gets $2,000 and third place walks away with $500.
Last year’s Hackathon, which focused on safety, resulted in one of the teams signing a contract with the city to develop an app for safe walking routes to school.
