Inclusion: Austin Transportation, Housing & Health

Truly smart cities are using technology for greater equity and access to transportation, housing and healthcare. We explore three specific Austin projects. An Austin digital inclusion project has trained residents in public housing to advocate at Austin City Hall for their transportation needs. A data project is working on a realtime Austin affordable housing database for residents seeking housing. A digital access project will provide Austin's neediest access to doctors via computer or mobile.
