Social Transit Research Lab

The Social Transit Research Lab (stArlab) is an open source effort to gather ideas about the socially-connected, socially-conscious transportation of the future. We produce Weeels, the free cab-sharing smartphone app for NYC.

Our blog is where we collect discoveries from the world of new transit, social and not, high tech and low.

IBM  Plans ‘Serious’ Sim City — InformationWeek
IBM said Monday that it plans to offer a SimCity-style online game that urban planners, students, academics, and others can use to learn more about urban sprawl and how to combat its negative effects on the environment. IBM called its CityOne simulation a “serious game” that can help users “discover how to make their cities and their industries smarter by solving real-world business, environmental, and logistical problems.”
