Open Traffic is a cloud-based repository populated with vehicle data from software applications used by New York State and City Agency ﬂeets, private ﬂeets, and consumer vehicles.
Open Traffic aims to allow broad, free access to traffic information — to reduce congestion, reduce fatalities, improve transportation investments, and promote multi-modal travel.
By matching traffic data to newly-accessible data on collisions, we hope to better identify correlations between traffic conditions and collisions.
