Hackathon Details

The hackathon will be a hands-on opportunity to improve GTFS data quality using open source solutions!

At the start of the Day 2, we’ll do some quick identification of critical problems in improving GTFS data quality. Once those problems are identified, we’ll ask community members to use GTFS data and the canonical GTFS validators (Canonical GTFS Schedule Validator and gtfs-realtime-validator) to build something that’ll help solve them. 

This can either be a new open source tool or an extension of a pre-existing tool that’s commonly used in the community.
