Combining Taxi GPS Data and Open-Source Software for Evidence-Based Traffic Management and Planning

Combining Taxi GPS Data and Open-Source Software for Evidence-Based Traffic Management and Planning

SDG: 11 - Sustainable Cities & Communities

Building on our previous open-source work - the OpenTraffic platform, which won first prize in the 2013 Philippines National E-Governance Competition, the Task Team will partner with Uber, an on-demand taxi service that generates taxi GPS data in more than 200 cities across 45 countries, to scale up the initiative so as to provide counterparts, globally, with a viable, inexpensive alternative to traditional travel time and congestion data collection and analysis, empowering resource-constrained agencies to make better, evidence-based decisions that previously had been out of reach - decisions about traffic signal timing plans, public transit provision, roadway infrastructure needs, emergency traffic management, and travel demand management.
