MobiPrize 2015 winner WhereIsMyTransport launches open platform for integrated transport data in Africa!
The first open platform for integrated transport data in emerging cities launches in Africa.
The platform accepts unstructured (and structured) data on any mode and allows others to develop apps and other endpoints with transport information for South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, and beyond.
Launched by Grand MobiPrize winners WhereIsMyTransport, the platform provides multi-modal journey planning, fare calculator, and more. Developers can build this information into their products or create new ones to disseminate transport information.
Launching with data for eleven African cities, the company is adding more every day. They actively partner with others who have transport data to share or want to be part of a collection effort.
WhereIsMyTransport has also launched a new blog around technology, transportation, and urban innovation in emerging regions, Interchange.
