The role of MPOs throughout the nation continues to evolve and expand. The federal transportation performance management measures, emerging technology, and access to new data provides MPOs with an opportunity to make better and well-informed decisions about how to invest transportation funding. However, it is critical that data-driven decisions are based on quality, dependable, and current data. As a result, the need for strong data governance, data management, advanced analytical tools and analyses, platforms to access available data, and sufficient staff structure and capacity are essential needs for the MPO community. In the interest of providing a forum for MPOs to discuss and share practices and tools, AMPO is exploring the development of a new working group focused on data.
A hands-on working group focused on creating and sharing content to support the MPO data community. Resources, webinars, and conversations will help to identify gaps in the data sector.
