Free, anonymized data from Uber.
With over 2 billion trips under its belt, Uber has access to a wealth of data about cities, transport, and urban mobility. And they’re working on making it publicly available through its new Movement tool.
Already, Uber Movement data has been used to [examine holiday traffic trends in Manila, measure road network performance in Australia, and understand the impact of Washington DC’s Metrorail shutdown.

For journalists, the release of Uber data could uncover stories about the impact of events, city planning measures, investments in infrastructure, and more.
