Winners of each stage will receive email notifications. Details will also be published on Skillenza webpage.

The submission should be functional for the judges to review.

There is no restriction to use any language, technology stack, or libraries. You can use any of them to create your application. However, do mention the list of pre-built, or open-source libraries being used.

At Skillenza, we take cheating/plagiarism very seriously. Answers and presented projects must be original, own work of the entrants. Any case of plagiarism may result in disqualification of the participant from the Hackathon.

Please write to us at support@skillenza.com or you can post a question in the Discussion forum. Also, you can reach out to 9902215958.

Yes you should, we will be sharing datasets that show the planned bus priority lanes around the city.

We will be providing static datasets made available to us from our data partners- Yulu, Open City and BMTC etc. These datasets will help you in designing the solution.

Refer to the Datasets index in the tab above.

The teams shortlisted in the concept note stage will be given access to datasets, after signing an agreement form.

Bengaluru Connectivity Index

Enabling efficient transportation through data

A big barrier to efficient transportation in India is the lack of correct, real-time information for
commuters. Commuters require a wide variety of information to make their travelling decisions,
such as fares, transfers, and the duration of the total trip. Other factors beyond public transport
also come into play while making a travel plan, such as whether taking a rented two-wheeler or
a cycle would be more convenient than a bus to get from BTM Layout to Indiranagar. While
journey planners exist, they often rely on outdated or static data that does not reflect the reality
on the ground, and they rarely cover modes beyond public transport.

You are required to develop an interactive tool or product that can leverage available data sets,
crowdsourced data, local knowledge, and elements of social media platforms to create the
“Bengaluru Connectivity Index.”

The platform will use the person’s location and destination to provide all possible transport
modes and allow users to choose their preferred mode of transport based on trip time, total fare,
and number of transfers.

In addition to helping commuters plan their trips across the city with accurate and real-time
information, the platform should also collate service information from buses, metros, trains, and
new mobility platforms to create a Connectivity Index for Bengaluru. This will be a scorecard,
ranging from A+ to D-, to assess how accessible different areas of the city are by various
transport modes, helping transportation agencies improve connectivity by seeing which areas
need it the most at a glance.

The tool should also include a survey feature for commuters to help crowdsource this data,
where commuters can fill in details about their trip (how long it took, what transport mode they
used, destination, etc.) and rank different areas in Bengaluru on their accessibility, helping to
build a better picture of transport connectivity in the city.

This exercise will require you to understand the challenges that affect how people move in the
city, and how effective communication can help incentivize better transport use and decrease
congestion in Bengaluru.
