Emerging data will have transformative impacts for transport authorities and we are exploring some of these issues and opportunities

Transformative technological changes are shaping the world and unleashing unprecedented volumes of data. Transport is a key generator of emerging data and also stands to be a significant beneficiary of new products, services, insights and ways of working that accompany this.

Emerging data will mean transport users will become far more fully informed about their travel choices whilst at the same time transform the ability of transport authorities to plan and manage transport networks and services more efficiently and effectively.

In May 2016 we held a workshop with the Future Cities Catapult to explore the challenges and opportunities for transport authorities to work with emerging data. We have now produced a report - Getting Smart on Data - which highlights some of these and offers a way forward, available to download below.
