Hackathon for transit apps coming soon

If you have an idea for improving transportation in Philadelphia that can be turned into an app, there’s an upcoming event for you.

It’s a weekend-long hackathon that starts with an idea session on Friday evening and ends with a demo session from 4 pm - 5 pm Sunday Sept. 22.

The event is a follow-up to the Apps for SEPTA hackathons of the past two years and will be held at 3rd Ward Philadelphia in Northern Liberties.

The organizers are Code for Philly, Jarvus Innovations and Code for America. They hope to have information about data sources from a variety of transportation organizations that coders can tap into for their apps, either by themselves or in combination with each other and data from SEPTA.
