...This week, BTS released what we think is a real treat: State Transportation by the Numbers Profiles. If you're curious about how your state is moving or what your state is moving, these easy-to-read profiles have a lot to offer. You don't have to be a data-head to enjoy these profiles. The BTS fact sheets are visually friendly, two-page collections of transportation information for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Each sheet includes information on infrastructure, safety, freight transportation, passenger travel, registered vehicles and vehicle-miles traveled, economy and finance, and energy and environment.
The BTS State Transportation by the Numbers Profiles also make a terrific accompaniment to our Beyond Traffic: Trends and Choices 30-year framework. In Beyond Traffic, we've looked at data --a lot of data-- and tried to listen to what that data is telling us about the future of transportation in America.
