This brochure is aimed at acquainting individuals and agencies with the efficacy of various crowdsourced data resources available to help them evaluate cross-border travel, as well as these sources’ potential and limitations.
New Report: The Potential Role and Application of Emerging Data in a Border-Crossing Context
This study explored how crowdsourced data can be used to better understand cross-border trips and travel patterns. Transportation officials can use these results to develop robust, data-driven policies regarding cross-border trips that, in turn, should make for more efficient, safe, and secure travel.
New Report: Exploration of Cross-Border Trip Characteristics Using Crowdsourced Data
This report explores cross-border trip characteristics using crowdsourced data, primarily focusing on INRIX data. The research team identified several cross-border travel patterns at El Paso–Ciudad Juárez land ports of entry and noted trends related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
New Report: Free and Secure Trade with Enhanced Reliability (FASTER)
Researcher identified traffic management strategies to improve crossing time reliability at commercial land ports of entry (LPOEs). They also successfully evaluated the strategies using two scenarios–an appointment scenario and a demand spreading scenario–using a microscopic traffic simulation model that the researchers developed for the Ysleta Zaragoza LPOE.
