UCLA C (Open Data & SRTS)
How are you currently using data to inform decision-making for Safe Routes to School (and other programs and initiatives related to walking and biking)? What data would make for better decisions (or make your life easier)? Would open data be the answer? What are the opportunities and what are the challenges and concerns? I have a lot of questions for folks and would love to brainstorm.
For commuters, awareness and enforcement of parking cash out might raise the popularity of biking and walking, especially for people living and working in Santa Monica. I don't know the landscape in Santa Monica, but regionally, awareness of the program is very low.
Aaron A Purposes of data for SRTS:
  • Help with planning of programs and infrastructure around schools
  • Providing access of information, planning, and reassurance to parents/guardians
What could be created / accomplished with this data?
  • facilitate trip chaining
SRTS modes and programs:
Rose M How do we organize the data to be useful to different audiences
  • Planners, parents and principles will use this data for different purpose
  • Taking your child to school is very personal, there is a need for trained personnel to interact with parents directly
  • Parents want their children to have consistent routes to school
Aaron A What data would be useful?
  • Crossing guard locations
  • Bike routes
  • School entrances 
  • Bike racks
  • Loading zones
  • Ped and traffic injuries and fatalities, dangerous intersections
  • Crime: abductions, kidnapping, gang activity (use graffiti as an indicator)
  • Speed of traffic
  • Walk score
  • School catchment
  • School distance locations
  • Bike trains
  • Signatled intersections
  • Dismissal and start times of schools
  • Tupical travel distance
  • Location/concentration of students
  • Transportation availability
  • Land use
  • Unhealthy food
  • Sidewalk conditions
  • Signage
  • Paint
  • School bus stops and routes
  • Public bus stops and routes
  • School plan for traffic
Rose M
  • Air quality
Aaron A Potential sources:
  • Waze
  • Strava
  • City GIS
  • Open Street Map
  • Schools
  • Transit agencies
  • Google 
Rose M Challenges to open data:
  • Hasn't been a priority 
  • Keeping the data up to date
