Data Sharing Research Project

UITP Asia-Pacific Centre for Transport Excellence is conducting a research project on: Sharing of data in public transport – governance and sustainability (January 2019 - On-going)

Research Objective

The aim of this project is to work with the global network of UITP to encourage public transport organisations to work with their peers across all stakeholders (authorities, operators and industry providers) to discuss and share data in relations to mobility data by reviewing the current data sharing framework of various cities/countries and explore the sustainable business models in data sharing.

Project Scope

This project is focussing on customer data (non-confidential) and mobility data. Data related to assets and infrastructure management and any non-passenger related are out of scope.

Data & Insights Collection

  • Survey to help understand and describe the current state of data sharing in public transport.
  • Detailed city-level case-studies on data sharing frameworks among key public transport stakeholders.
  • Blog article for publication on UITP Asia-Pacific website and/or in the report to share opinions on what do successful forms of data sharing look like in public transport and how should they be best achieved.
  • Exclusive expert roundtable on data sharing on 9 June 2019 alongside UITP Global Public Transport Summit, Stockholm, Sweden.

The project will involve public transport experts and professionals in the digital sector to understand the current landscape of data sharing in public transport and refine guiding principles and recommendations to their actual needs.
