Visualizing MTA Performance Data with Python

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) runs the largest public transportation system in North America, spanning twelve counties and serving over 15 million people. The organization’s network includes the nation’s largest bus fleet, and the most subway and rail cars.

In this session, MTA data scientists will teach attendees how to visualize MTA performance data, using Python’s pandas and streamlit packages to build interactive webpages.

Our session will use the open-source Visual Studio Code (https://code.visualstudio.com) Integrated Development Environment (IDE), where we’ll go over how you can build your very own streamlit web app using python and MTA Open Data.

This session will be led by Dan Powers, Senior Data Scientist, and Rahnuma Tarannum, a graduate student at NYU and an intern in the MTA Data & Analytics Team.

Some previous programming experience is recommended, but not required!
