NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission Hackathon

Help NYC TLC provide more public data – identify potential privacy risks in public taxi datasets!

The TLC has been a pioneer in sharing big data since 2010. With over 21,000 licensed vehicles equipped to capture GPS-enabled trip records. TLC’s trip data are valuable for policy makers, scholars, businesses and urban planners. Earlier data releases included anonymized vehicle and driver identifiers, but in 2014 they were de-anonymized and published. In response, we stopped releasing these identifiers altogether, which limits the data’s usefulness.  TLC would like you help to re-release this information in the most efficient manner possible.
