Join LA’s Urban Transportation Hackathon

The future of transportation needs you! Join our 24 hour hackathon to help define the integration of technology and the built environment. How do we shape our cities' transportation systems to make them more safe, sustainable, accessible and equitable for all?


Save the date: November 16th-17th.

Location: Be at the center of LA CoMotion to find inspiration and collectively build out new ideas.


We’re asking “How do we get to a future without traffic jams?”

Southern California is seeing a transportation renaissance with increased focus on: capital projects, mobility services, inclusivity and environmental considerations. At the same time, Los Angeles has the worst traffic worldwide. The average LA commuter spent over 100 hours sitting in traffic last year. This costs each driver $2,408 annually or aggregated, $9.7 billion city wide.** These are huge topics.

Our goal is to iterate on solutions that help better connect people to the places they love. We’ll bring together designers, analysts and engineers to work on new technologies that bridge the embedded transportation and mobile worlds. Work with experts from moovel, Mercedes-Benz and Daimler DigitalLife Strategy. Create your ideas with some of the latest IoT hardware and access to transit centric backend systems. We’ll supply you with an initial tool kit and mentorship to help jump-start ideas.


  • INNOVATION - Is the idea a unique transportation solution that solves a need people have when trying to move from place to place?
  • USE OF THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT – Does the idea help bridge the physical world of transportation with the world of tech?
  • TECHNICAL DEMONSTRATION - Is the idea technically feasible and scalable with a working prototype?
  • INCLUSION - Does the idea take use centered design into consideration including for underserved people?
  • BUSINESS POTENTIAL – Is there a business case to support the idea.
