Yellow taxi Demand prediction Newyork city



Predict the pick up density of yellow cabs at a given particular time and a location in new york city.

Yellow Taxi: Yellow Medallion Taxicabs

These are the famous NYC yellow taxis that provide transportation exclusively through street-hails. The number of taxicabs is limited by a finite number of medallions issued by the TLC. You access this mode of transportation by standing in the street and hailing an available taxi with your hand. The pickups are not pre-arranged.

In this project we are considering only the yellow taxis for the year of 2015

The data used in the attached datasets were collected and provided to the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC)


Data type: CSV files

Train data: train.csv

  • pick-up and drop-off dates/times,
  • pick-up and drop-off locations,
  • trip distances,
  • itemized fares,
  • rate types,
  • payment types,
  • driver-reported passenger counts

Total number of records in train data: 146 million

Data Size: 12GB

  1. Hi Sir I am interested to enroll for this class and i want to know a couple of things:
    1. Can I apply the same concepts with similar taxi data.
    2. With one year of data (<1GB) can I expect amedium accuracy ?

    Thank you

    • 1. yes you can apply these concepts on similar taxi data
      2. the final model that we build uses only one-year data. yes, you can expect decent accuracy
