Expert Panel: INRIX Next-Gen Origin Destination Technologies – Faster and More Affordable
Join Us for a Webinar Next Week – Wed, April 20th 
10:30am PST, 1:30pm EST

New origin-destination technologies from INRIX available today are positioned to revolutionize how city planners, DOTs and the like can better plan multi-modal improvements for the future, keeping up with the ever-increasing mobility demands upon a region. Hear from a panel of experts about how knowledge about commuting patterns provides the necessary data to planning agencies to understand the current demand and its shape, using the new data sources for model calibration and validation. Similarly, knowing where people start and end their journeys to a major sporting event can help local authorities plan and manage virtually every aspect of the relevant transport decisions with much greater precision.
