Understanding Utilization of Third Party Travel Data and Information

There are a number of private vendors today who sell and provide third party data for a variety of transportation purposes. Data may be oriented to commercial freight companies, personal navigation systems, transportation agencies and many more. Speed, travel time, volume and occupancy data is important in maintaining the safety and mobility of the transportation network. Some transportation agencies use this type of data from third party providers to deliver traveler information, manage traffic, and conduct studies.

ENTERPRISE initiated this project – Understanding Utilization of Third Party Travel Data and Information – to better understand what providers are offering, how states are using the data and what their options might be for future use of such data. The approach for this project involved an initial survey of ENTERPRISE member needs and uses for third party data.

The final report summarizes the information gathered during this project and is written in a format to accommodate easy future reference by the ENTERPRISE members. The information summarized in this report includes:

  1. ENTERPRISE member survey of third party data needs and uses
  2. Third party data provider information
  3. Public agency experiences with using third party data
