“Transportation equity means giving people options to choose from, and letting them pick what works best for them.”
– Amy Huang, Community Capacity Planning Specialist, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods
TDEI project aims and approach
Everyone needs data they can trust.
Our project addresses inequities in transportation data and travel information via a three-pronged approach:
- Enhance data standards to include information relevant to all travelers and transit stakeholders.
- Provide tools and data infrastructure reducing barriers for data stewards to collect, vet, maintain and use traveler-centric transportation data at scale.
- Demonstrate our work through pilot data collections with private and public partners, and demonstration projects that make use of our data.
