Celebrating Cities: Hacking the Last Mile

The goal of the Uber API is to empower and to build moving experiences and we have been blown away by the creativity and ambition of the developer community.

After hosting Hackathons across the world—from Lagos, Nigeria to Helsinki, Finland to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, we are excited to kick off the year with a first-of-its-kind hackathon in Washington, DC. Set to take place in our East Coast headquarters the weekend of February 26, this event will focus on improving access to transportation in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metro areas using public data.

We’re hosting a Hackathon in Partnership with Deloitte, and the Participation of the USDOT

Inspired by the Department of Transportation’s Ladders of Opportunity initiative, this hackathon is focused on celebrating cities. This event is set to empower developers to build and design solutions to help residents of the DC – Baltimore metro areas gain better access to transportation, whether they need to get to work, a small business, or home after a night out. If you have a passion to help people and have an innovative idea that you’d like to explore, join us!
