Start Date:

July 08, 2020 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT


Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) developed a Data Business Plan Guide for Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and regional agencies to assist them with organizing their mobility data – including addressing technology and institutional issues associated with sharing and integrating operations and planning data. The Guide includes techniques to: develop data partnerships and governance, address gaps, conduct capability maturity assessments and get ready for regional data platforms. FHWA assisted three agencies in developing pilot Data Business Plans to address mobility data challenges. These are Hillsborough MPO, Maryland State DOT and Mid America Regional Council (MARC). FHWA has also sponsored training and facilitated workshops for regional agencies interested in working on improving mobility data access and partnering. These agencies include The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC). A workshop is being planned for The Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC).  
This webinar will provide information about the Guide and features presentations from many of the agencies listed above, where they will share best practices and lessons learned in mobility data business planning and governance. The guide can be accessed here.
