We’re hosting an open conversation about transportation data. This is one in a series of “Data User Group” conversations organized by the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center. User groups are open meetings designed to build community among data users, identify data publishing priorities, and allow participants to share expertise and build collaboration around the use of data. If you use transportation data, or are interested in using it, please join us.
To kick off the meeting, Adams Carroll, Director of Operations with Healthy Ride will dig into how their system captures data on ridership, and how the organization uses it to enhance bike share services in the City.
We'll then want to hear from you about your stories and needs. Here are a few discussion questions to get you prepared:
How have you used transportation data in your work, and what ideas do you have for using data?
What are the datasets you use most-often?
Which datasets are at the top of your wish-list?
Are there things you find most-difficult about using transportation data?
What are your favorite tools for using data? What would you most like to learn?
How can data help you answer questions about your community?
