The ride hailing company Uber is providing access to anonymised data from more than billion trips it has made, which it says will help improve urban planning around the world.

It says Uber Movement is about making our cities move more efficiently, because that matters to us all.

It says the data will be useful to a number of different types of people, such as city officials where detailed historical insights make it possible to measure the impact of road improvements, major events, new transit lines, and more, planners and policymakers who can conduct complex analysis on transport patterns to allow for better decision making around future infrastructure investments and the general public because, it says, “breakthrough insights and ideas can come from anywhere”.

The data includes travel times and allows users to compare patterns in different cities.
