Using LODES to Measure Transit Effectiveness
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 1:30:00 PM to  2:30:00 PM Eastern

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), welcomes Richard Batchelder as he presents, “Using LODES to Measure Transit Effectiveness.” In this webinar Mr. Batchelder demonstrates a way to measure whether a transit agency is providing effective service to workers in a certain area using the LEHD Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) data and General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) files. This information allows a transit agency to fine-tune routing for commuters and presents a way to relieve rush-hour congestion.
