We provide transport data services across West Midlands Combined Authority and our partners.
We help to collect, manage, report, analyse and visualise data. We also carry out research projects and publish our findings.
We give access to data on:
- traffic counts
- vehicle classifications
- public transport passenger counts
- road traffic collisions
- managed survey framework
We help people to understand how changes to the region might affect transport. This includes public and private transport. This is called transport modelling.
We are responsible for the PRISM transport model, ensuring it works across the region with others, for example the Coventry CASM model or HS2 Planet model.
We’re improving how we work with data. We work with universities and other partners to do this.
We publish some transport datasets on:
- Road traffic incidents
- Transport surveys - classified axel counts, classified speed counts and programmed volume counts
- Congestion data
You can use these datasets in:
- geographical information system (GIS) software
- computer aided design (CAD) software
We also create interactive Tableau data dashboards. You need to request an account to access them.
We can use a tool called Esri to create applications like live storymaps. We created a storymap for the closure of Paradise Circus in 2019.
