Transportation services are changing rapidly. Ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft are changing the role that government plays in public transit, while electric vehicle adoption is disrupting traditional funding models based on gas taxes.
Federal, state, and local transportation agencies have access to more data than ever. Mobile devices, GPS, connected vehicles and other traffic monitoring sources are a wealth of information to provide insight into real-world travel patterns. Used correctly, this data can increase the efficiency of operations and help us build a better overall understanding of how citizens move, allowing local governments to apply resources where they are needed most.
