Transparency of data is critical to cities for both planning and policy purposes. Foursquare ITP worked as part of a multidisciplinary team to produce an online performance dashboard of interactive maps showing key transportation metrics for the District of Columbia, leading the effort to produce transit performance metrics as part of defining multimodal congestion in the District. The information enables residents and stakeholders to understand the intensity of transit use across the District (ridership) and where buses are experiencing congestion (speed, overcrowding, on-time performance), all at the roadway segment level. We also developed a walkshed analysis for Metrorail stations, bus stops, and bikeshare stations throughout the District. These maps combine the frequency of transit and the actual walking distance using network analysis to show the percentage of population and employment in the district within actual walking distance of rail station entrances, bus stops, and bikeshare stations.
