The U.S. Department of Transportation and Governance Lab at NYU held a civic innovation roundtable with U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx. Meghan Cook, an invited expert, took part in the discussion of how open data and technology are spurring innovation and addressing transportation challenges. One of the outcome of the day is the U.S.DOT Innovation Data Challenge
, which is looking for participants to create a tool to address systemic challenges by accessing publicly-available federal and/or local DOT datasets.
