Equity in the Use of Emerging Data Sources for Transportation Planning
Project summary: There are critical gaps in our understanding of how the use of emerging data sources to plan for transportation infrastructure and service might affect social equity. In the present study, we aim to address these two knowledge gaps through the following objectives/questions:
- How do US cities use crowdsourced and crowd-sensed data to make decisions about transportation infrastructure and service?
- How spatially representative are the crowdsourced and crowd-sensed data that cities use to plan for transportation infrastructure and service?
We are currently answering the first research question via interviews with planners across the US.
