Very proud of a group of Fahrenheit NYC team members and friends – @shrose, Tom Abraham, @julia.sigal, Rahul Desai, @arunima_a, and @alejolargo – for winning #NYCBigApps’ Transportation Challenge last night. They turned their passion project (many early mornings and late nights) into an incredible proposition that aims to make life better for New Yorkers commuting daily. Huge congratulations to the team! We can't wait to see what you do next.
More information on their winning project, OnBoard: OnBoard is a distributed passenger check-in system for New York City’s paratransit network (Access-A-Ride). By creating a public, independent database of passenger pickups, OnBoard empowers transit advocates to assess and improve service schedules and quality, and ensures a safer, more reliable ride for thousands of New Yorkers.
