New sensors and the rise of digital communication has created an explosion in the amount of travel data generated. MIT is investigating new ways of storing, analyzing and synthesizing this data to enable informed decisions by transportation operators and policy makers. Some examples are leveraging cell phone records to predict future travel patterns and using smart card data to design more efficient bus routes.
