Making transportation data make sense from origin to destination.

What we do

Listen and Investigate 

We get that data can be hard. That’s why we are constantly scanning for new and innovative data sources and methods that can bring deeper insight to tough transportation problems. 

Evaluate and Iterate 

Obtaining an accurate view of a problem requires quality data. We use the best data available through thorough evaluation and iterative collaboration with data providers. Our focus on data quality assurance and quality control research and techniques ensures the data meet our high standards. 

Innovate to Solve Problems 

We find new ways to simplify, understand, and solve complex transportation problems, so we can then translate theory into actionable insights for everyone.

Analyze and Produce 

We fuse and analyze data and information using a broad spectrum of methodologies and innovative approaches. Our goal is to produce actionable, timely, and usable information that broadens the planning and decision-making discussion.

Share and Inform 

We want to ensure the world has the best information to make informed transportation planning decisions. So, we work to make data accessible and digestible to all audiences in a way that makes big data seem small
