Proposed: Open Transport (Beta) is a provider of an API solution for building transportation apps. The Open Transport API connects to all existing fleets and networks, granting your app access to real-time availability, booking, and tracking information. The API can connect your app to service for taxis, car/ride services, bikes, point-to-point rental cars, deliveries, drones, self-driving vehicles, etc., and will take care of the supply, from quality assurance to billing. Developers deploying the Open Transport API (Beta) can develop on-demand apps and add on-demand delivery to any applications. The API conveys requests and responses in JSON format.
Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Big Data, Transportation, and Translation. Featured today is an API from Caret for enabling applications to trigger automatic status alerts, and APIs from MeaningCloud that extract meaning from content.
