About Our Datathon

Smart SA Categories

Transportation

As more people move to San Antonio the need for reliable and affordable transportation services increases.

Help us find new insights to improve rider experience, affordability, and increase ridership.

Sustainability

The City needs to be able to support its residents as it grows and changes. From environmental and conservation efforts to affordable housing, we need to better understand the impact we are having and how to continuously improve the quality of life for residents.

Access to Services

As part of the City’s goal to create a connected, resilient, and inclusive San Antonio, we need to consolidate and improve the accessibility and effectiveness of SmartSA services. Help us identify opportunities to combine existing services and create new ones.
