We are proud to launch CongestionHack! An open data hackathon by Transport for NSW.
CongestionHack will bring together industry, innovators, entrepreneurs, students and TfNSW staff to pitch ideas and build proof of concepts for dramatically improving congestion in and around Sydney. As Sydney’s population grows it continues to put greater demands on our transport networks and infrastructure, leading to congestion. If not managed correctly, congestion can have severe economic, social and environmental impacts.
This is your opportunity to use data to produce insights into demand and congestion, its causes and correlations, to produce a solution or advise on how to manage it more effectively.
CongestionHack is a Hackathon that will be held from Friday 23rd March to Sunday 25th March 2018 at The Hatchery at UTS. At CongestionHack individuals from the public and Transport for NSW (TfNSW) will have the opportunity to form teams and work on an idea to improve and manage congestion. You will have the weekend to develop a proof of concept (POC) that addresses the congestion challenges facing Sydney and present your idea as a pitch at the conclusion of the hackathon.
