CSUD recently received news that the Smart Cities project has made it to the second round of the Knight Foundation News Challenge.  Out of 850 applicants, 40 were shortlisted for final review. The project aims to collect transportation data – including paratransit, rail and walking information – and put this data into General Transportation Feed Specifications (GTFS) to create an open access data system in Kenya. The system can be used by residents to inform policy and make planning decisions in the city of Nairobi.

This project is carried out in partnership with the Department of Informatics and Computer Science at the University of Nairobi, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Civic Data Design Project and the design firm Groupshot.
