Data is an essential part of everything the Vermont Agency of Transportation does, and turning that data into useful information for our customers was the goal when we started this project. The VTransparency team has taken data from sources all over the agency to create tools for getting answers to some of the questions we get most often. But we know there will always be more questions and opportunities to make more of this data, so we have also made the data freely available in order to empower the public to come up with new ways of using it to create more tools. We look forward to seeing what grows from this.
Transparency is imperative as it not only assures customers that VTrans is effectively managing the resources under its care, but holds VTrans accountable for its actions and decisions.
