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 (November 2018 - 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

  • Quantitative survey on the current state of data sharing in public transport.
  • Detailed use-cases.
  • Roundtables,workshops and/or focus discussions with authorities, operators and new mobility players.

The project will involve UITP members to understand the current landscape of data sharing in public transport and refine guiding principles and recommendations to their actual needs. If you would like to contribute to the research, please contact Clémence Morlet for further information.
