The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has announced the opening of public voting for the NYC BigApps 2.0 Competition. The big apple has wasted no time in following last year's successful competition with 350 datasets from over 40 agencies. From the looks of the apps, the NYC tech community is already fired up about the competition.
Chicago commuters just got a new resource that may lead to more helpful mashups: the Chicago Transit Authority Bus Tracker API. As recently announced, the API provides capability for developers to get bus routes and schedules, bus stop and arrival predictions, and more. Note that the API is not affiliated with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA); rather, it was developed and is maintained by Harper Reed, who says the CTA has been "amazingly cool with all of this." In announcing the API, Harper wrote:
Carpools are a great option for the daily commute to the office, especially for those who want to save a substantial amount on fuel or just simply want to minimise their carbon footprint by using their vehicles less. Carpoolworld is an application that works to help commuters and other travellers find others in nearby locations with similar transportation needs, to make ride-sharing arrangements. Carpoolworld also provides the Carpoolworld API that gives developers the option to create applications using this data.
