Improving journey planning calculations for informal transport 

The project

I helped conduct a study designed to improve trip planning calculations for informal modes of transport. We collected an extensive amount of data on a single route with multiple variations in Sea Point to better grasp the supply and demand, and see if we were able to make accurate ETA predictions at different times of the day based on our samples.

My friend Chris King, co-founder of WhereIsMyTransport, was invited to present our findings at the Southern African Transport Conference in July 2019.
