A recap of the Regional Transit Challenge projects from the initial hack event.Civic Tech
Last weekend saw the second annual Civic Innovation Day hosted for Charlottesville, Virginia, an all-day data event that pulls students and professionals together to answer a range of real community challenges. And as the project fellow for the Regional Transit Challenge, I’m helping organize the effort to “create a platform for current and potential transit passengers to know what service options are available, and how to best access the services”.
This post is a summary of the solutions presented during the event. There is a GitHub repo too with data and links to original presentations.

Vizualizing JAUNT service areas and CAT bus stops together
A big thank you to everyone who participated and contributed their skills to solving real local problems for Charlottesville. There are follow up meetings scheduled with the transit authority sponsors to map out the app/sign path forward.
