Apply to a challenge and join us at the Mobility for All Abilities Hackathon!
For National Day of Civic Hacking, BetaNYC, NYC Department of Transportation, NYC Mayor’s Office of People with Disabilities, NYC Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics, and MakerSpace NYC are challenging New Yorkers to reimagine how all people move around our city streets and sidewalks. Join 100 diverse individuals, organizations, and government stakeholders for a day-long mapathon and civic hacking event to improve mobility equity in NYC.
We identified community needs for mobility equity in NYC with local organizers and stakeholders, and came up with 9 challenges to work on at the hackathon. Come work on meeting them with us and improve how everyone moves around the city.
We are looking for 100 hackers, technologists, makers, problem solvers, mappers and thoughtful citizens to participate on a challenge team and spend the day with civic leaders contributing their skills and learning new ones (like how to map!). Check out the challenges below and apply to join at challenge team at the hackathon.
We will have free, on-site childcare provided by professional sitters.
