Open Transport Projects in Germany

Alexey Valikov came from Frankfurt to present in a real firework various Open Transport projects like e.g.

Holger Bruch presented Mitfahren-BW, a journey planner that finds intermodal trips combining carpooling and public transport.

Networking / Snack

We had a good exchange afterwards and plan to continue the Open Transport Meetup next year in Stuttgart and in other cities in Germany. And the 'transit hackers' were keen on starting kind of an Open Transport Hack Night in Stuttgart, taking place regularly :-)
