Transport Data Initiative
The Transport Data Initiative is led by local authorities who believe that improving the way we collect, store, and use data will help us deliver improved transport services while reducing costs of delivery. Founded by a consortium of local authorities led by Buckinghamshire County Council in 2016, the TDI has fast established itself as a major player in UK transport, with representatives from over 40 different transport authorities, covering 85% of the UK population, having attended at least one of our forum meetings to date.
Supported by an extensive network of transport specialists from the wider public sector and industry, we enable local authorities of all sizes and budgets to benefit from innovative solutions traditionally reserved for large urban centres. With our uncompromising focus on the common transport challenges faced by all local authorities, we facilitate deep and targeted collaboration across the sector, by helping solution providers design services which meet the unique requirements of local authorities and improving awareness within local authorities of the capacities of the wider marketplace.
TDI forums blend presentations with interactive elements such as workshops, discussion groups, and exhibition stalls to encourage delegates to develop ideas and expand their networks. We collect extensive feedback from attendees that we use to direct the format and agenda of future events.
