Cities have access to curb pick-up and drop-off data from Uber and Lyft to allow them to make policy and infrastructure decisions based on the use of their streets.
Companies use our libraries and API to assign SharedStreets references to pick-up and drop-off data along their global street networks.
SharedStreets referenced pick-up and drop-off data points are generated and divided into sub-sections along the street.
To protect user privacy & business interests when dealing with potentially reidentifiable information, trips are aggregated to pre-set bins along the street network. Point data is also aggregated by time of day and day of week. This aggregation is run on the company's servers.
Aggregated pick-up and drop-off data is pulled into a user interface in its aggregated form. This can be viewed in the user interface and filtered by time of day and day of week or exported in GeoJSON format to be used in GIS.
Q: Does this show every trip in a city?
A: No. The data shared is for set weeks over the course of the year that were chosen with cities to model typical conditions.
Q: Is this a public dataset?
A: This dataset is licensed to the city by the company and is not a public dataset.
Q: I am a city employee and would like data for my city. How do I get it?
A: We recommend first reaching out to your city representatives at Uber and Lyft and requesting SharedStreets Pick-up Drop-off data. After that, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help your request along.
