This report provides an in-depth assessment of market-available connected vehicle (CV) data (using Wejo datasets) to estimate border crossing times. Results indicate the Wejo CV data provide a promising source for monitoring border crossing times, especially as sample penetration rates improve.
New Brochure: Evaluating Crowdsourced Data Sources for Cross-Border Travel
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.

2018 Report: Estimating Economic Impact of Commercial Vehicle Border Delays in Real Time
A research team developed an implementation plan for a web-based economic impact estimation dashboard. The dashboard uses real-time data on economic costs of border delays in the El Paso–Ciudad Juárez region. This study updates work conducted in 2009 and 2010 on this topic.
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.
Collection of Private and Commercial Data at the Border
Associate Research Engineer Alfredo Sanchez with TTI’s Center for International Intelligent Transportation Research talks about the value of collecting private and commercial data at the border to better estimate border wait times. Knowing how long it takes people and goods to cross the border can impact tourism and how much consumers pay in stores. | View the Video
Climate Trends and Transportation
Climate change is happening. Rising global average temperatures have been documented beyond a reasonable scientific doubt. And those same rigorous empirical standards are predicting this trend will continue. [Read more…] about Climate Trends and Transportation
