SharedStreets is a non-profit digital commons for the street. It's a data standard and a platform that serves
as a launching pad for public-private collaboration and a clearinghouse for data exchange.
More than lines and points on a map, SharedStreets is a system for sharing actionable information across city and company
lines, and helps communities around the world better understand and manage their streets.
SharedStreets data standards are a global, non-proprietary system for describing streets,
designed to support the complexity and interconnectedness of our modern transportation
system. SharedStreets standards support the exchange of a variety of street-linked data, public or private.

State-of-the-art data processing, visualization and analysis tools build on SharedStreets
data standards and provide public and private sector innovators with new ways of working with complex
data sets, and new insights into managing streets and urban mobility.
Secure, resuable tools for data exchange replace costly one-off relationships with SharedStreets' universal
distribution channel for aggregated, anonymized data. Combined with standardized licenses, the SharedStreets platform helps
transport authorities look beyond "open data," and develop ways for working with privacy sensitive information and experiment
with new forms of public-private collaboration.
Using aggregated, anonymized data derived from in-vehicle sensors, the SharedStreets
safety platform can measure and manage congestion and monitor where unsafe driver behaviors
such as speeding, hard braking and rapid acceleration occur. With this tool, cities can
identify opportunities for street redesigns before crashes happen and measure subsequent
The SharedStreets data standards allow cities to map their curb regulations, as well
leverage new kinds of data to better understand curb use. With this tool, cities
can reduce idling and circling vehicles, redesign streets to best match current demand,
and lay the foundation for new dynamic pricing to better manage city streets.
The SharedStreets platform merges existing transit data, traffic volumes, speeds and
other metrics to improve transit operations and manage congestion. This tool allows
cities to know how many people (not just vehicles) a street is moving, and better allocate
street space to improve the operation of the street for person throughput.
