About the Workshop

Attend this two-hour workshop for a more hands-on experience hosted by Ray Cha. Ray will walk us through one of the 10 modules in the Open Transit Data Toolkit, a Nature of Cities project funded by TransitCenter to help advocates, agency staff, and concerned citizens transform transit data into useful knowledge.
Using freely available transit data, the workshop will walk attendees through finding and preparing data in order to analyze and visualize transit data in a meaningful way.
Beginners are encouraged to join! This is a workshop where attendees will follow along.
