Transportation Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

Uber

The Uber API exposes a set of RESTful endpoints that enable your application to GET information such as time and price estimates about the products offered in a given location, request rides on behalf of authenticated users, and create ride reminders for users to take a ride at a specific time in the future.
