NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress Tackles Bus Reliability, Harmful Landlord Practices, with Data

In a new series called MetroLab's Innovation of the Month, we examine innovative data projects between universities and local governments.

MetroLab Executive Director Ben Levine sat down with Professor Kontokosta and this year’s two Capstone finalists to talk about the program and the finalists’ projects.
