Events API for Ride-Sharing Apps

Access PredictHQ’s intelligent event data to make Ride-Sharing Apps smarter

Events API for Ride-Sharing Apps

Multiple data streams in just one API

When you’ve got to get from A to B, it’s often easier to leave your car at home and order a ride via a ride-sharing app instead. But when you’re the Uber driver who’s looking for business, an app doesn’t always give you all the information you need to figure out where more derrieres need to get to places.

PredictHQ’s API makes it easy to see at a glance when scheduled events like concerts, sporting fixtures and festivals, along with unscheduled events like severe weather or airport delays, are happening, so your taxis and on-demand transport can make the most of increased demand. We collate and aggregate local, national and international scheduled and unscheduled events into one handy place, so you can see what events are happening and when, make more cabs and drivers available, and send them to the right places.

Ranked Events

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

The likes of Uber, Lyft, Didi Grab and Ola are increasingly becoming popular choices for passengers looking to get to places. But when you’re the driver, it’s wise to know in advance when and where major events are happening, so you’re the first they’ll call when they need a ride. PredictHQ’s API gives you access to millions of scheduled and unscheduled global events across 18 categories - and counting - and enables you to find relevant events with a simple REST call. Our smart ranking algorithm, built right here at PredictHQ, assigns a numerical rank to every single event we store, so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance which ones are the most important. From there, communicate to your on-demand drivers via their driver app or email comms to ensure punters choose you over your competitors. Want to do more with our data? Download and store our events to make requests to your own local copy, so you can carry out data modeling and analysis, improve forecasting accuracy, and optimize operations like inventory and workforce management.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

When it comes to getting from A to B, on-demand transport is increasingly becoming the new black. It makes sense, then, for taxi, carpooling and on-demand transport companies to know when and where major events are happening, so they can make the most of increased demand. Our powerful data processing pipeline pulls multiple data streams and third party APIs into one smart information source so all the scheduled and unscheduled event information that could impact your industry can be found in one handy place. Lookup events by searching within a geographical radius, using IATA codes or geographical place names. You can query multiple event categories and locations at the same time, and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform thanks to our easy-to-use API. We have Python and JavaScript SDKs available too. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available in the API. Your developers won’t need to spend precious time on data quality measures like capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources because we do it for them, plus our API is versioned for easier maintenance. Now, that’s smarter intercity travel for everyone.
