What We're Reading This Week
Tomorrow the Rudin Center, in partnership with TransitCenter and the MTA, with support from Carto DB and Google, will host the Staten Island Bus Hackathon. This hackathon, the first of its kind in NYC, is an opportunity for civic-minded technologists and planners to produce proposals for faster, more effective bus transit for Staten Island, where the bus network is being updated for the first time in decades. We are proud to say that the Hackathon is at capacity, so we hope you'll stay tuned for a recap of the event and highlighted solutions!
