This package is a Ruby wrapper for the Postmates API, allowing Ruby applications to interact with the Postmates Delivery service. Postmates enables users to order courier deliveries of food and objects from any restaurant or store. The Ruby gem requires an API key and customer ID to interface with the API.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York State (MTA) recently announced a new apps contest called MTA App Quest. The contest is designed to promote apps that cover a much broader system than just New York City and spark interest around the MTA API and newly released datasets. The MTA App Quest is the latest chapter in the MTA's transformation from a relatively closed agency to one that is embracing open transit data.
