NACTO Releases Principles for Transportation Data Sharing
The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) has "released a framework for data sharing by private mobility providers, which account for a large and growing share of trips taken within U.S. cities."
The new Data Sharing Principles [pdf] document was announced in a press release on the NACTO website. The document follows on the heels of an announcement by Uber that it would share some of its trip data on its new Movement platform.
NACTO produced its Data Sharing Principles to build on such initial cooperative efforts between cities and private mobility providers. "With NACTO’s Data Sharing Principles, private transportation providers can avoid a patchwork of individual cities’ policies, providing predictability for future investment," according to the press release.
