The Washington, D.C. Department of Transportation (DDOT) launched an interactive dashboard called District Mobility that maps performance measures, such as public transportation ridership, average commuting time, and bike lane availability, for the D.C. transportation system. District Mobility uses data from a variety of sources including the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, the U.S. Census Bureau, and DDOT to create interactive maps of Washington, D.C. and the surrounding metro region. DDOT will use these visualizations to help address mobility issues within the transportation system such as reducing congestion, increasing reliability, and improving accessibility.
