Big Data, Better Transportation Planning

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

For over 25 years, researchers looking to analyze the travel habits of Ontarians have been mainly limited to information gathered by pen and paper. The University of Toronto's engineering department is seeking to change that; hoping to bring transportation data collection into the 21st century. Steve Paikin welcomes Eric Miller, director of the university's Transportation Research Institute to discuss how big data and phone apps can better inform transportation planning in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area.
