We’re proud to announce that Embark NYC won the NYC Big Apps 3.0 judges’ award for Best Mobility App! The awards ceremony took place on April 17, 2012 in New York. In this third installment of the Big Apps contest, 96 app entries that used New York City’s open datasets competed for 12 different awards. The Embark team was at the ceremony to accept the award, and shook Mayor Bloomberg’s hand on stage. Here is the NYC Economic Development Corporation’s press release about the contest winners, and the original Embark NYC entry on ChallengePost.

Again, thanks to all our users for voting for us during the public voting period on ChallengePost. We’re very pleased with the reception that Embark NYC has enjoyed, and we think you’ll really like what we’re working on next.
