Bureau of Transportation Statistics: Developing a Statistical Roadmap to Inform Transportation Financing Decisions

Oct 25, 2019

Project Overview


The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), within the U.S. Department of Transportation, is a federal statistical agency that provides actionable statistics and context of those statistics to policymakers and the public. BTS strives to innovatively collect, analyze, and distribute data to inform decision-making on transportation issues.

Project Description

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics engaged the Academy to develop a roadmap for the collection of transportation financial data to inform decisions related to alternative means of financing transportation projects, including both public financing and public-private partnerships. The Academy will conduct primary research, host a one-day conference to discuss the subject, solicit the input of the assembled experts, and develop strategic roadmap based on the recommendations emerging from the conference.

A three-member Expert Advisory Group will provide guidance throughout the seven-month project on the study methodology, conference planning and development, and strategic roadmap.


If you have any questions or comments regarding the study, please contact Joe Mitchell, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Project Director, at (202) 204-3631, or jmitchell@napawash.org.
