DOT offers state-by-state transportation data online
All of the data collected from the DOT is given to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) within the DOT’s Office of Research and Technology. This week, the office released the State Transportation by Numbers report. These profiles are easy to read and help citizens and travelers better understand transportation activity in each state, including which goods are being transported through which states.
The profiles include information such as infrastructure, safety, freight transportation, passenger travel, registered vehicles and vehicle-miles traveled, economy and finance, and energy and environment. The profiles also add to the 30-year project, "Beyond Traffic: Trends and Choices," a draft framework for how the nation’s transportation and infrastructure are evolving. It involves everyone in the country, from daily users to developers and operators of the transportation network.
Those interested can find the state-by-state data on the U.S. Transportation Facts and Figures mapping application, as well as http://gis.rita.dot.gov/StateFacts.
