The Center for Neighborhood Technology Just Unveiled the Largest-Ever Transit Data Comparison Tool (Edgewater Glen Data)
We included a few Edgewater Glen snapshots below. Edgewater Glen appears in two “Block Groups”. You can select the one you are interested in on the map and then view the “Metrics” tab at the top to see a wealth of data about jobs, economy, health, equity, transit quality & mobility for both East & West Edgewater Glen (or anywhere else in the country).
Dive into the data here at AllTransit if you are interested.
“Today, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) and TransitCenter unveiled a first-of-its-kind interactive online tool to help people understand the value of transit in their communities. AllTransit aggregates information from over 543,000 transit stops, 800 transit agencies, and 15,000 routes nationwide – a collection of data of unprecedented breadth about transit connectivity, access, and frequency. The tool not only provides a better understanding of the quality of transit service, but goes a step further by assessing how access to public transportation affects health, equity, and economic development.
“Using AllTransit, transit advocates will be able to find data and statistics to support advocacy efforts with greater ease than ever before. Planners can quickly examine where transit is lacking in their communities. Small-business owners can visualize the impact of transit on their customers. And journalists will have a simple, fast way to access transit data to inform their reporting,” said Scott Bernstein, president of the Center for Neighborhood Technology.
AllTransit also introduces a dynamic new way to measure the quality of transit: the AllTransit Performance Score, which combines data on connectivity, job access, frequency of service, and commuting habits. The result is the most comprehensive assessment of transit quality at the local level than has ever been available to the public.” – The Center for Neighborhood Technology
