On August 15th, 16th and 17th, we’re holding a hackathon and design jam to see what kinds of apps, maps, stories and visualizations we can create using Bike Share Toronto data and other cycling and planning data.

New Bike Share and Cycling App Data

This will be the first time that Bike Share AND City of Toronto cycling app data will be made available. For more on the data, see: https://bikesharearup-hackathonde.squarespace.com/the-data/

Hackathon Challenges

DEVELOPERS/DESIGNERS/MAPPERS - THIS IS FOR YOU!

The main challenge is to explore how we can use data to get more people in Toronto onto bikes! We will continue to work with Bike Share and the City after the hack to support and grow the work done on this weekend. We also have several partners who want to promote the work being done! More on the categories, requirements, data and other important stuff can be found here: https://bikesharearup-hackathonde.squarespace.com/the-challenge/

Design Jam and Tech Fun

EVERYONE ELSE - THIS IS FOR YOU! CYCLISTS/TRANSPORTATION PEOPLE/DADS, MOMS, KIDS/CITY-LOVERS!!

If you're not a techie but would like to contribute as a cyclist, transportation policy person or in any other way, you are more than welcome! Come by Friday, Saturday or Sunday (or all 3!) and get involved in the intro to tech talks, planning and data talks, family fun for kids learning with video tools (thank you Mozilla!) and more. This is when you'll have a chance to play with the data, see what it tells us, and talk about how it can be used. We'll also have a session for transportation enthusiasts and cyclists to chime in and talk about the work that the hack is producing, as it happens.
