TriMet to hold 'hackathon' to enhance transit apps

The Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) will host a data "hackathon" on June 25, the second event in the agency's Open Data Developer Series.

The event is an opportunity for developers to incorporate new transit data, such as passenger load capacity and congestion information, into mobile applications to give riders more on-street information, TriMet officials said in a press release.

The Open Data Developer Series series is a partnership between TriMet, the Technology Association of Oregon, Isite Design, INIT, Tait Communications and Metro. The series is a collection of three events designed to promote the use of information related to transit and expand on TriMet's developer resources.
