This project developed guidance for local agencies, MPOs, and state DOTs to utilize the rapidly emerging data being collected and processed by the private sector in urban and metropolitan areas. The study defined and described new data sources; examined approaches, methods, and analytical techniques that enable agencies to better carry out their planning, programming, and operations responsibilities. Additionally, it recommended approaches on how agencies can leverage new data sources and analytics while overcoming practical and institutional challenges such as data sharing and partnerships. 1
