U.S. Department of Transportation
Improve Planning through Archived Operations Data
The purpose of this web-based informational session is to assist transportation planners and their operations partners in effectively using archived operations data for developing, analyzing, and evaluating transportation plans and programs. It aims to raise planners' awareness of the opportunities afforded through archived operations data and provides guidance on how to take advantage of that data to expand and improve planning practices. The session provides information on how to overcome the barriers to obtaining and using data.
This session includes video presentations by instructors, lessons learned from experienced practitioners, demonstrations, and narrated slides.
The target audiences for this session include transportation planners, operators, and data specialists at metropolitan planning organizations, State and local departments of transportation, and transit agencies who are interested in getting more use out of operations data resources.
