With Big Data comes big responsibilities, particularly for cities working to plan, manage, and analyze what’s happening on their streets. The proliferation of new technologies like ride-hailing apps, dockless bikes, and e-scooters has created unprecedented amounts of data about how and where people travel in cities.
As mobility services proliferate in cities, the data they generate can help cities answer questions on who is using streets, and why, but also opens the door to concerns about data storage, security, and responsible stewardship. Join this session for a primer on how transportation agencies are adopting a principles-based approach to data management, along with open data standards to manage the public right-of-way in the digital age, and make smart and safe use of mobility data.
Session Format: Moderated panel discussion
