Ford Motor Company, Uber And Lyft Announce Data Sharing Agreement

Ford Motor Company, Uber and Lyft have announced a dating sharing agreement. The three companies said the intent is to improve urban congestion rates and reduce emissions.

The groundbreaking public-private partnership is the result of a collaboration among the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), the Open Transport Partnership and Bloomberg Philanthropies, the consortium behind the innovative SharedStreets data platform.

First funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies and developed by NACTO and the Open Transport Partnership, SharedStreets is a neutral, anonymized clearinghouse for data collected by transportation providers, private companies and government agencies, as well as a hub for industry-leading data analysis, traffic planning, street design and development of new technologies.
